Is there any way to export and import Kickoff Application Launcher's menu? I use Kubuntu 14.10 Plasma 4.

The KDE Menu Editor Handbook (mirror) has a section: 'Transfer application launcher settings':

There is no way to transfer menu settings using the GUI, you have to do that manually and copy the following files to the target user:

KMenuEdit stores the menu hierarchy in menus/applications-kmenuedit.menu in the folder $(qtpaths --paths GenericConfigLocation) and desktop-directories in the folder $(qtpaths --paths GenericDataLocation) contains desktop files for submenus you created. In applications/ in the folder $(qtpaths --paths GenericDataLocation) you find the desktop files for the custom items you created. The shortcuts for each application are stored in kglobalshortcutsrc in the folder $(qtpaths --paths GenericConfigLocation), but export/import does not work because the UUIDs of the shortcuts do not match up between systems, even though the .desktop files are the same. You have to assign all shortcuts manually again.
