It is possible. Though it requires some searching among the KDE folder( /opt/kde/share/ )

But I guess itcould be easier(but possibly dangerous) to download and reinstall KDE(download from, not using the official release one from Mandrake) Not sure though!

Thats why I love Slack, keep things the way they were meant to be!

Head to ~/.kde/share/icons/ This is where your user installed icon themes will be (as long as they were installed using the tar.gz files like ftom kde-look)

Select the folder of the icon theme that you are using, or that you want to use.

Go into the size folders (16x16, 32x32, etc) and into the apps folder. The 2 most common are 32x32 and 48x48

Locate the icon named kmenu.png and rename it to menuk-mdk.png

Then reload your icon theme (K menu -> System -> Configuration -> KDE -> LookNFeel -> Icons, select a new theme, then your original theme and click apply)
