NOOB: Lost Shortcuts when upgraded SuSE 9.3 to 10.0

I had a bunch of shortcuts to programs (GroupWise, MySQL Administrator, etc) on my desktop and in the KDE menu. I upgraded from 9.3 to 10.0, now all are gone. I know how to add programs to the KDE menu, but I have no idea where the applications reside. Any help would be appreciated.

You should be able to find your lost proggies from the command line (as long as you know what they were called):

$ which programname

if this fails try a find:

$ find / -name programname -print

Hope this helps.

I would sugest just searching your root directory for them, but in suse most programs reside in your usr/bin folder. good luck
