You have to add a program for this. Search for "transparent kicker" at

The easiest way is to change your default icon set in Kcontrol. But if
you know what icon set you're using, just go to the directory where your
icons are. On my box, it's:
Within the icons directory, you will find several different sets of the
same icons in different pixel sizes. You're looking for either 32x32 or
48x48. Within both of those directories is a sub-directory called
"apps". The icon for the Kmenu is called "kmenu.png". Replace it and
Kmenu has a different icon.
If you want to customize the look of KDE, then the place to look is always:
