Follow-up Comment #5, bug #43207 (project octave):

Yes, it's there - as the only .desktop file.

There are a lot more .desktop files in /usr/share/.

* I've copied it to /usr/share - no luck.
* Edited the properties ("Science"-> "Sciences", "GNU Octave" ->  "GNU Octave
3.9.0+" etc) to match & avoid, resp. what's in my App menu - no luck.

I must say that on Mageia (my usual Linux distro) it is often quite hard to
recover what settings have gone where. That is not only valid for kde; systemd
and other layers have contributed to my confusion. In addition Mageia is
heavily if not ridiculously "perl-ized" making it again harder to find & debug
issues :-(

It can also be that Mageia-2 is too old. I'll try in Mageia-4 64b later today.
