    Which distro are you using?

    If its rpm based(redhat, centos, fedora), you can install using yum. Otherwise if it is debian/ubuntu/mint, you can use apt-get to install gnome.

    after the installation is finished, you can logout from KDE session and login again after selecting the session as GNOME.

    If you are running PCLinuxOS 2011.6: 1. Open Synaptic Package Manager; 2.Select Sections view; 3. Select Graphical Desktop/GNOME; 4. Look for task-gnome in right window; 5. Click in box to left of title and choose mark for installation; 6. Click Apply. When finished Reboot, slect Gnome from Menu and login.
    Cheers. Ray
