I'm on plasma5, so you may have to adapt locations a bit if they've 
changed since your kde4.

KDE system settings, personalization, applications, launch feedback.

There's separate settings for the busy cursor and the taskbar launch 
notification.  The taskbar launch notification has both an enable 
checkbox and a timeout setting.  The busy cursor allows selecting the 
type (bouncing, blinking, passive, none) and has a timeout setting.
