download KDE:

can't help you on removing gnome. i've seen a thread here on LQ about it, though, which you could probably find pretty easily.

hi

you mentioned apt. so i guess you are using debian or some other debian based distros. use synaptic and search and remove packages with gnome in it. leave out the gtk and gdk base libraries bcoz you might need it later. hope that helped
