Distribution: OpenSUSE 13.2 64bit-Gnome on ASUS U52F
Fedora is actually available in KDE, Xfce, and LXDE so I am assuming OP installed the one with KDE and now he wants to try Gnome. Which is possible to do without having to re install the OS, just the DE.
Look in the package manger for the Gnome desktop: I think the command to install is
yum groupinstall "Gnome desktop environment"
but you can check with
If you want to get rid of KDE later, then I think it's
yum groupremove "KDE desktop"
but you need to check that too. If you remove KDE, you MUST do
yum install gdm
otherwise you won't be able to log-in; the gdm package is in both groups, so it's lost when you remove KDE.
