I was on openSUSE Leap 15. I was using GNOME desktop environment. I installed KDE Plasma with this method:

https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:KDE_install

After installing KDE Plasma, I also upgraded my Leap 15 to Tumbleweed with these instructions:

https://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Tumbleweed_upgrade

I have already edited these files, and replaced Gdm with Kdm and Gnome with Plasma5:

me@linux-iwyn:~> sudo vim /etc/sysconfig/windowmanager 
me@linux-iwyn:~> sudo vim /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager 

Now, I have openSUSE Tumbleweed and I login with KDE Plasma desktop environment. However, I am observing that gdm and gnome-related stuff are still all over my system:

I wonder how I can totally get rid of Gnome/Gdm.

You can use zypper to look for gnome patterns and remove them, like:

sudo zypper -n rm patterns-openSUSE-gnome gnome-*
  • Thanks ☺ eventually I installed openSUSE Leap 15 with KDE as the desktop environment – user3405291 Mar 22 at 19:09
