  It's called "Appearance & Themes/Launch feedback/Bouncing Cursor".
You can find it in your KDE control center. 
  You can turn it off completely or modify the time the cursor is bouncing,
when it doesn't receive the app's feedback that it's running.
  It's also possible to disable it on a per-app basis, by modifying the app's
.desktop file and adding 
line or modifying true to false if it's already there. I don't know how to
do it natively using KDE GUI (if it's possible at all, formerly it was not).
       With regards, Pavel Troller
