I had the same problem...
I found the quicklaunch plasmoïd on kde-look, but what can be found on doesn't work because of paths that are different.

However, concerning the quick launch replacement, you should try in the
K menu to right-click on your favorite app and then , "add to favorites"
: this is what is displayed first when you click on the K Menu, and is
almost what I use daily now, instead of the folder view I have (which is
not easy to use because of windows beeing on top, execpt if you want to
use the dashboard plasma, which also looks very cool, I admit...)
