i have two partitions one with ubuntu gnome and one with kubuntu kde.

I belive you can make kde a session in ubuntu so i would like to do that but dont want to do the download.

is it possible to copy files needed from the kubuntu partition to ubuntu partition and add it as a session?

Not that I'm aware of, but if you have a lot of updated applications in, for example the kubuntu partition, as a result of normal updating, you could save a lot of downloading by using aptoncd to make an iso file of all cached packages in kubuntu and then restoring them in your gnome ubuntu system. Then do an install of the kubuntu-desktop in your gnome system and it will add that but not need to download as much as it otherwise would.
