The problem is that the file is missing.  You can get it back like this:

$ sudo apt-get --yes --download-only --reinstall install kubuntu-default-settings
$ sudo dpkg --force-confmiss --install /var/cache/apt/archives/kubuntu-default-settings_1%3a5.04-07_all.deb

(You might need to change that filename to the version that you downloaded 
if a new version is available before you read this mail)

You should see a message like this:

Configuration file `/etc/kderc', does not exist on system.
Installing new config file as you request.

After that, relogin to KDE.
