in KDE, under the settings or utilities menu (im not sure which one) in the "K Menu" , there should be a program called Menu editor.

I think you can also right click on the menu and there should be an option for the menu editor.

for GNOME, go into Nautilus, then Go-->Start Here, and then go into "applications" and change shortcuts accordingly.

The solution I posted for this thread is also what you're after, for Gnome menus that is.

Good luck!
