Assuming a kde-frameworks (not the old kde4) base, the generic knotifyrc
is likely in ~/.config/knotifyrc , tho that location can be changed by
setting the XDG_CONFIG_HOME environmental variable as appropriate.
Individual applications may have their own notifyrc, however, and I
suspect that's what that message is referring to. Those would be
<appname>.notifyrc in the same subdir, so look for a kdialog.notifyrc
file as well.
For kde4 it was I believe ~/.kde/share/config/knotifyrc (and
<appname>.notifyrc) by default (tho some distros changed that to .kde4 or
similar), or $KDEHOME/share/config/ if $KDEHOME is set.
Note that if you are running the plasma desktop, the GUI knotify config
should be available in kde systemsettings, by running kcmshell5 kcmnotify,
or by typing notifications in krunner and selecting the notifications
system settings applet (which uses the *.desktop file to run kcmshell5
kcmnotify, so this is really a variant of that one).
