Ben --

You need to install the desktop-integration parts manually, after the main
install. Please see:

 http://www.openoffice.org/download/common/instructions.html

This does not happen "automagically". I can't tell by your response here
what you've done.

If you have installed some other desktop-integration piece for AOO, I
suggest you uninstall that, install the freedesktop-menus, get out of KDE
then back in, to see changes.

Please be aware that this effects main KDE/mime_type/application menu
integration only and not TOTAL KDE integration, e.g. kmail, etc.

I hope this helps.
