I must assume you are working with v9.0 since v8.2 is KDE-centric :)

It is a very simple matter to add or remove a desktop, such as KDE within

Go to the PC-BSD control panel -> System Manager, select System Packages
tab, then choose KDE within the 'Desktops' group.

It is possible to initiate the System Manager GUI from the commandline
with: pc-sysmanager


Adding/removing a PC-BSD package within System Manager will also have a
side-effect of removal of any installed FreeBSD Ports or Packages.

Hope you enjoy your time with PC-BSD!
