    And thx for the tip: Mesa-dri-nouveau was installed. Uninstalled it - hopefully it'll improve the situation. Probably need to reboot or restart KDE to see any differences. I don't need OpenGL much/at all (probably need to start using mvp more in video playing).

    I thought you used Plasma / Unstable from Repo

    Wasn't my intention to make a joke but to find a solution for the problem.

    So, anyone else having similar issues or am I alone with the problem?

    No, I doubt you're alone, but you seem to have more than your fair share of problems.

    On the whole I've found Plasma 5 to be reasonable stable for my own use case, on 2 different machines, both have nvidia cards (one machine with the OSS nouveau driver, the other with nvidia's proprietary driver). I'm not seeing the problems you describe, but don't doubt you have them.

    I would suggest as a starting point perhaps look at https://bugs.kde.org/ to see if any of your symptoms are known bugs (with possible workarounds even). Taking your example of the task bar notifications, there are bugs relating to wrong positioning, freezing of the desktop, etc.

    Create a new (test) user profile, does that also have the problems you describe?

    If you're able to reliable replicate any of the problems you have, consider reporting bugs yourself.

    If you consider KDE to be too unstable for your needs, then as you alluded to, there are other desktop environments.
