    Is there a safe way to remove the KDE desktop environment in Fedora 23 ?

    Thanks,

    Generally it is quicker and easier to install the spin you want to use. Trying to delete an environment without breaking the system is very difficult.

    That's what I was afraid of. Didn't want to screw up my whole system.
    Thanks for your response.

    Other than installing a new spin, you can simply install the desktop environment you want and call it, leaving kde idle on the disk if space in not an issue. A number of times in the past I have done that, to return to the desktop environment that I originally wanted to get rid of. Some time ago when kde had problems, I left it for another desktop, but when kde was upgraded and more stable, I returned to it.

    No limit. I've got g3, kde5, lxqt, openbox and e19 and they happily live together.

    I install a bunch so I can try them all out. Right now I have been sticking with XFCE.

    Of course if you have only just installed KDE and haven't done much else since you could try using dnf history to undo the installation.
