Floating notifications do not disappear automatically as they should be. As an example, whenever I connect to a network it shows the floating notification as "WiFi Connection 'WiFi' has been activated". It should disappear after few moments but it never disappears. I can not make it disappear it anyway. A screenshot is attached in the link.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect to an Wifi network
3.Floating Notification appears at the top right side of the screen
Floating Notification never disappears and it stays always top of the screen
Floating notification should disappear automatically after a few moments
KDE Frameworks: 5.9.0 ($ kf5-config -v)

Thanks for the report.
First of all, you're using NotifyOSD, which are Unity's notifications. To get rid of them, you'd probably have to remove the notify-osd package as they are started before Plasma and "steal" the notifications from us. But I think I'll work on Plasma automatically killing it...
Second, there was indeed a bug on our side, which is fixed in frameworks 5.11 (or maybe even .10).

Thanks everyone. Removing the package 'notify-osd' solved the problem.
Hello guys, any idea how I can get this fix in kubuntu 15.04? What package to upgrade, etc?
With me changing network a lot, it becomes very annoying, I have a popup in the right corner of my screen almost instantly after I start the session, and unless I logout I cannot get it to dissapear.
Or maybe a command that I could run to make it go away?
I have tried kwin_x11 --replace, doesn't change anything
I went to synaptic to try to uninstall notify osd, but it says it will uninstall ubuntu-desktop. I definitely don't want that.
You need to get KDE Frameworks 5.10. That will fix your NotifyOSD. If you want to use Plasma's notifications instead, then you need to kill the notify-osd process somehow and in Notifications applet in systray uncheck and check "Show application and system notifications" and make sure you press apply inbetween.
kill notify-osd worked, made that annoying thing get away from my screen. Thank you veeeery much.
