~/.kde/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc and also in
~/.kde/share/config/kdeglobals which stores amongst other things the
digital clock formatting information. Be aware that the characters that you
enter in the Country/Region & Language - KDE Control Module Date & Time
window are different than the characters that are stored here.

If you want I can help you set up the Adjustable Clock.

If you want I will create a cross reference file for you but it will take a
few more days.

As It was with my researching what I have gotten so far I screwed my system
and had to reinstall Kubuntu.
