I tried to add another user and log in as that user, and this new user
has the menu working, so im thinking that it cant be a problem in the
shared configuration, it must be a problem in the user-specific
configuration, right?

Ive noticed theres a .kde in each users home-dir, so now i guess i only
have to figure out what file(s) i have to copy over from the new user to
my old user, and also what file(s) to edit by hand in the future when i
want to edit the menu.

Theres a share dir under the .kde dir, and this dir contains the
following:

 applnk
 apps
 config
 locale
 mimelnk
 services
 servicetypes

But i cant figure out where to go from here. Does any of you guys know?

Beat regards
Søren
