KMenu > System Settings > Keyboard & Mouse > Keyboard Shortcuts

In the Shortcut Schemes tab, down under Global Shortcuts, System > Windows, 
you will see Minimize.

Highlight Minimize, select the Custom radio button below, and press the 
keycombo you want to do the minimizing. Apply/OK, and enjoy!
