Why don't you add the openoffice menu entries to kmenu manually?
To do this you need to open the 'KDE menu editor'.
Now follow these instructions:
1. Choose the submenu where you want to put the OOO menu items
2. Press the 'New Item' button in the toolbar (a new empty entry will appear)
3. Give a name to the entry (Writer for example)
4. In the 'command' section add this: 'soffice -writer' (assuming you have a 'soffice' executable in /usr/bin/) This will start writer. For calc you need 'soffice -calc', for impress 'soffice -impress', for base 'soffice -base'. Of course you need a separate entry for each of these. You also can add an entry whith just 'soffice' in the command section, where an OOO with a menu will appear (where you can chose what document you want to create).
