I have installed fedora 23 gnome workstation, now I want to install the kde version without eraseing it. I know that I can install it using command line but I have already downloaded the iso image of the kde version. Now my question is can I now install kde using that iso file in the existing fedora gnome. I don't want to create any seperate partition or to erase the existing gnome. My broadband is also not working in installed fedora, so I don't have the option to install kde spin through internet. If there is any way by which I can install kde with the iso image from existing fedora gnome then please reply.

There are going to be a ton of updates so you would not gain much if you did. You would need the fedora DVD as I do not think the live kde image contains rpm packages.

mount your iso image: 'mount -t iso9660 -o loop /path-to-your-iso-image/ISONAME.iso /mnt/' install Plasma 5: 'dnf --disablerepo=fedora.repo --repofrompath fedora.repo,/mnt group install "KDE Plasma Workspaces" unmount iso image: 'umount /mnt' log out from gnome session and select 'plasma session' from gdm
