Update window manager software to move from KDE to GNOME
We want to not use the SLF6 version of KDE.
Instead we want t move to gnome which will be supported till 2018 and can still use most of the KDE tools (kdialog etc...)

Used the yum groupinstall command to update parts of the window system.
To do this I did a:
to get a list of the available groups. Then I did a:
yum groupinstall "Desktop Platform Development"
To install the headers and development libs.
The other groups that were needed were:
General Purpose Desktop
Desktop Debugging and Performance Tools
I also installed the "TeX Support" group to get the right fonts to match LaTeX documents
