Public bug reported:

the first thing i install everytime is chromium-browser. after the installation i open the menu and look around. isnt there. close the menu and look if it is installed - yep it is. look another time and hell. now it is there. the same by all other apps.
someone pointed me that I can "reindex"/workaround if i let kbuildsycoca run after the installation and yes, that works all the time.

So my question is why isnt that standard? 
because i i want to install it, most times i want to use ist after the installation and if it isnt there after it. thats stupid.

after another little research and help of some apt guy he let me know that this isnt that hard
> just create a file like '/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/19kbuildsycoca4' with dpkg::Post-Invoke {"echo Running kbuildsycoca4...;/usr/bin/kbuildsycoca4 2> /dev/null";} or something similar in it

after that info, i reainstalled kubuntu in my vbox, enabled this one and
installed some single packages. after installation they where all in the
menu and in krunner without any waiting

maybe its not the right package section for this "bug" but i dont know where the right one for kubuntu related is. sorry for that
