You say you've been given this RHEL...who gave it to you?? And I had mentioned previously about RHEL not really being a good choice for 'consumer' hardware...you don't say what kind of hardware, only what kind of processor.
Again, RHEL is meant for servers...if someone gave it to you, did they also purchase you a subscription??? And again, what kind of desktop environment are you using? Gnome or KDE??? Any of the editors I mentioned *CAN* run on RHEL, but again, installing them may be tricky...without a paid RHEL subscription, you may not be able to install the right libraries easily, and things may be fairly complex.
If this is a brand-new installation on a laptop or 'consumer' workstation with decent graphics (like an nVidia card), I'd strongly suggest you stop where you are, and install either Fedora (if you want to stay within the RHEL ecosystem), or Linux Mint. Either will be easier to use, and support for higher-end graphics will be easier to obtain/install. Also, the programs mentioned will probably be in their online repositories, so installing them will take a few mouse-clicks, rather than compiling a lot of software from source.
