I had an Ubuntu Server 14.04 CD lying around, and therefore did not bother to download Kubuntu 14.04.

My laptop's home directory is backed up daily via ssh to the server. So my data was safe.

To overcome this, install the kde-workspace-randr package. It will provide you with an icon in the system tray where you can unify the outputs and change each's resolution more easily.

Do it using the following command, or use your favorite software installation program:
