    Default KDE notifications screen position

    Today I was playing around with my KDE desktop. After I had finished playing I put it back as I had it originally . . . but now KDE notifications appear in the top left hand corner instead of in the bottom right hand corner.



    I can't seem to find a setting to move this around.

    If I click on the notifications icon in the tray it moves it to the bottom right hand corner but the next new notification is back in the top left.
    Is there a setting for this somewhere?

    KDE 4.9.5

    edit: when I say I was playing I simply mean I changed from default desktop view to folder view and then back again.

    Try creating a new activity to match the one you want
    Unlock the widgets when you do it. Then lock again when you are done.
    Does that help

    created a new activity with widgets unlocked but it is still placing notifications in the top left hand corner.
    If I remember correctly, in older versions of KDE you could drag this notification bar around - but this doesn't seem possible in KDE 4.9.5

    it's in one of the plasma rc files, probably plasma-desktop-appletsrc either ~/.kde4/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc or ~/.kde/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc)

    probably this sectiion
    [Containments][3][Applets][7][Configuration][Applets][41][Configuration]
    AutoHidePopup=true
    Share=false
    ShowJobs=true
    ShowNotifications=true
    customPosition=251,-10
    customPositionAffinityHoriz=r
    customPositionAffinityVert=b


    I don't have any entry that resembles this in my plasmarc file

    All I needed was the removal and reintroduction of the tray...
    this had no effect.

    unfortunately there isn't really anything listed there that has been too much help.

    The only solution so far has been to create a new user - and for the new user the notification progress appears in the top right as it did previously for my usual user account.

    There must be a configurable file somewhere that would let me specify where to put it. I don't believe the file is plasma-desktop-appletsrc as I have copied this over from my newly create user and it had no effect.

    Set the notification icon to be always visible, then all notifications
    will be always in the lower right corner.
    I thought this bug would be fixed by now, but i guess not.
