Edit right mouse click menu

Hello,

I have Centos 5.8 installed in a Virtual box. I want to edit the menu which appears when the right button of the mouse is clicked on the desktop.

I found this procedure for gnome "window manager":

Place any script, link or binary (must be executable) in the folder

/homedir/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts


example:

ln -s /usr/bin/konsole /home/user/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts


And a new menu option "scripts" appear on right mouse click, and there you find your konsole link



But for KDE could not find anything in the Internet.

If some body can help, it will be great!
