How I can remove XFCE and install KDE (last version)?

I want remove XFCE and other DEs that installed on my PC and then I want install KDE Plasma last version that in KDE Neon.
How can I do this?

First, welcome to the forum!

In order to give you the instructions and correct order to do that we would need to know the list of DEs you have installed currently.

XFCE Session
Budgie Desktop
GNOME on Xorg
I did not install gnomes Idk how they installed

some general info about it:

here is the yaml file where you can see exactly packages installed for each DE:

budgie brings in GNOME


Those gnome entries probably came along with budgie. You probably only have xfce and budgie installed.

Did I understand true.
And can u type me how can I remove budgie too?

there is no general working command, as you may install uninstall other stuff too, and also package list itself is changing a bit from time to time… so keep an eye on what is going to get uninstalled and make sure reinstalling kde/plasma one time after removing the others.

sudo pacman -Rs budgie-desktop gnome gnome-screensaver lightdm lightdm-gtk-greeter lightdm-gtk-greeter-settings network-manager-applet xdg-user-dirs-gtk fwupd arc-x-icons-theme arc-gtk-theme

sudo pacman -S --needed plasma kdeconnect python-dbus kde-system-meta kde-utilities-meta kio-fuse kio-gdrive audiocd-kio gwenview kdegraphics-thumbnailers ark okular dragon elisa print-manager spectacle sddm sddm-kcm

sudo systemctl -f enable sddm
