Run the following scripts:
############## 
#!/bin/bash

pushd /usr/share/applications/kde
for file in *.desktop; do
        grep -q OnlyShowIn=KDE $file
        if [ $? -eq 1 ]; then
                sudo su -c "echo 'OnlyShowIn=KDE' >> $file"
        fi
done
popd
##############
#!/bin/bash

pushd /usr/share/applications
for file in *.desktop; do
        echo $file | grep -q wireshark
        if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then
                continue
        fi
        grep Categories $file | grep -q GNOME
        if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then
                grep -q OnlyShowIn=GNOME $file
                if [ $? -eq 1 ]; then
                        sudo su -c "echo 'OnlyShowIn=GNOME' >> $file"
                fi
        fi
done
popd
##############

The first one will make all KDE programs invisible in the GNOME menu.
The second one will make all GNOME programs invisible in the KDE menu.

I saved the first script in a file called kdemenu.sh and the second
script in a file called gnomemenu.sh.  Change the permission on the
files (chmod +x <filename>).
