Resolution is an Xserver configuration item, so you set it in the X server 
config file.

Settings that are stored in KDE's configuration files can also be set in the 
global KDE directory (or directories), if there is no global default config 
file for a particular application, you can create it by copying a user's one 
and removing everything you don't need.
