how to change 'kmenu' & 'show_desktop' buttons' description ?

i am working with pclinuxos 2007 / Kde.
i changed the system language to Hebrew and i even changed the content of the tooltips (baloon) of the task bar applications.
2 things i couldn't change and are : kmenu button & show_desktop button as right click on the mouse does not offer the 'configure <button_name>' option.
does any body know how to do it ?
(the biggest problem is that because of changing every thing from left-2-right less than a half of the content of the 2 problematic tooltips is seen.
thnx 4 the help.....when comes.... LOL

The show desktop icon is named desktop.png (and user_desktop.png). Its located in the filesystem section of the directory which contains the icon theme you are using. Check /usr/share/icons and ~/.kde/share/icons for your icon them and replace the icons with your own. The kmenu icon is called kmenu.png and its located in the apps section.
