Depends: kio-sysinfo but it is not going to be installed
E: /var/cache/apt/archives/mint-artwork-kde_1.3.0_all.deb: trying to overwrite `/usr/share/pixmaps/apps/openoffice_about.bmp', which is also in package mint-artwork-gnome

Finally, if you can't decide or want to keep both, then keep the gnome edition you have installed, and install the kde metapackages through synaptic -> search for "kde".
That said, I would strongly advise picking just one. The disadvantages of having two big, bloated desktop environments hanging around are that they tend to conflict for resources, take up +twice as much hd space for the same experience (well, you can't use both at the same time on the same computer, really), and besides which kde is an awfully big download and a real monter of an install. So I'd suggest picking one of them, and then installing whichever system you decide to keep.

The "bloat" of HD space for these DE on this 20 gig drive is tiny. When I have LXDE I have a fast computer. My daughter gets the programs she is use to and my son gets to see the shinny KDE 4 goodness. (I love KDE 4 just not on a P4 CPU

LXDE is like a memory efficient KDE
XFCE is like a memory efficient GNOME
and Fluxbox is pretty much as stripped down as possible.
