Hi Jesse,

Reinstalling kubuntu-desktop should get rid of the problem. Found this 
using google with "ubuntu icons missing".
I suspect it will also fix start menu items missing.

Do: sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop.

P.S. If you ever forget a package name but remember part of it, just do: 
sudo apt-cache search "search-term", like in this case I searched for 
ubuntu-desktop and found kubuntu-desktop,

Kind regards, Guus Bonnema.
