It is not very clear to me.
You installed KDE, you did not like it and purged Gnome ?

The simpliest way to remove something you do not want is something like:
<apt-get remove --purge kde>

- What is the output of 
journalctl -xn
dpkg --audit

- And what is your Debian version ?
ls /etc/*rel*
cat /etc/<result-you-got>
cat /etc/os-release
apt-cache policy
apt-cache policy gnome

PS unfortunately, there are mentions of systemd in your mail; I think it will be difficult to find useful answers in the flood you will get.
