Konqueror + Add actions to menu

In Konqueror 3.3.0 , I have these actions in my right click menu:
create gzip archive
create bzip archive
create archive
extract to...
extract here

in Konq 3.3.2
I have only:

create data cd with K3b
append to kaffiene....

I would like to add the archive and extract(unzip) functions to the menu. I think it is in Konqueror configuration under file associations, but....

Knew this would happen.....while trying to edit Konqueror context menu, I lost my main start menu, and if I right click on start, the menu editor appears but won't launch. Also cannot even open simple text files....doesnt know how to associate files. I can't get to the file associations.
For some reason, the documentation for Kmenu editor was not loaded during installation and there is no Kman entry in 'man' pages

It is very like that you just miss something you had installed at the prior version, for example ark or kdeaddons

same issue with KDE3.5

I'm running Debian unstable (via kanotix) and I have the same issue.

Kanotix comes with 3.4, but I upgraded to 3.5 soon after install, and I'm also missing the Extract options. I have the compress menu entries.

Is there an easy way to get them back? I have kdeaddons and kdeutils installed.

Very strange, there is a new option now to "preview in Archiver", which seems to embed Ark into the file manager. This is better than opening files in Ark - rar files for example. KDE doesn't allow you to enter a rar file as a folder like you can with gz or zip files. Anyway, when I open a rar with Ark, I can't drag the files out without silly clipboard errors, but when I choose 'preview in Archiver', I can actually drag them out, which is an improvement...

Still, I would much prefer just to be able to right-click on a rar file and select, "Extract here".
