How to move this notification?

Sun Sep 02, 2012 1:22 am
What is this called on top left.

I can't drag it anywhere. It is the coping/moving files notification It ramdomly appears near de notification area like it should be, but almost always it appears on top left. which is annoying. I wasn't able to find help mostly because I don't know the exact proper name of that.
Using Kubuntu kde 4.8.4, widgets are unlocked.
Any help is appreciated.
EDIT: I added a video http://youtu.be/pFQ9FKOJZlw

Not sure of the exact name, but it is the jobs notification window for "file transfers and other jobs", from the Notifications widget.


I'd rather be locked out than locked in

strange, mine always pops up in bottom right above the notification widget, did yours alway appear in upper left?

try removing it from the system tray and then adding it back
- right click in system tray (blank area) -> system tray settings -> display -> unclick notifications -> ok
- repeat but then enable notifications

Already tried that, but didn't worked. I thought you could move that thing. I had ubuntu and its notifications appear on top right, then from ubuntu I installed kde and kde notifications appeared there too (top right). So I did a fresh kubuntu installation and that job notifications appeared on top left and I can't drag it anywhere. I don't know what makes it appear bottom right, but 99% of the times it appears on top.

I can't move it either, you can move the notification window (things like "copying [finished]") maybe that's what you were thinking of

You should rename the thread to "How to move the notifications widget's progress bar"

Yes it still appears there on newly created account.
Also I have deleted /home/diego/.kde/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc from my user account and it still appears top left.

If you remove the notification applet completely from your desktop does this still show?

I removed the notification applet and started to copy a folder, nothing showed up, i didn't know how to stop the file transfer so I waited and then deleted the folder I copied.

If you run ksysguard are there any gnome/unity/compiz/gtk apps running? You can use the "quick search" to filter on the different terms. I am wondering if somehow this could have an effect on the placement

That is partly expected. If you had logged out and back in, a dialog would have appeared when you began the copy.
It seems you may be experiencing a bug in Plasma.

If you add the applet back again - does the issue recur?

Nothing is showed in results except for unity, which shows chrome (web browser I am using).

I deleted the system tray and added it back and it still happens.
I deleted "notifications" from the system tray and added it back and same results.
I moved the panel to all sides of my screen, started differents file transfers and the applet never moved.
Then I deleted notifications from system tray and added "notifications" to the panel (I mean not to the system tray. It doesn't hide there), and it finally worked fine (I didn't know you could add the "notifications" by itself to the panel). The notification appeared bottom left.
As I said it doesn't hide in system tray, when I close the notifications (updates,downloads,etc) it doesn't go away, it stays there saying "no notifications or jobs", but seems to be a perfect workaround for now.

When in the system tray, is the applet in the correct position (in the tray) or is it hidden in the hidden icons area?

When it is on the system tray, it is hidden if there aren't notifications.

Please open the System Tray settings and force the Notifications applet to be always shown, and see if this impacts upon this.
