When I type
gedit in my terminal, I get:
daniel@daniel-pc:~$ gedit The program 'gedit' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing: sudo apt-get install gedit
So I do that:
daniel@daniel-pc:~$ sudo apt-get install gedit Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. The following information may help to resolve the situation: The following packages have unmet dependencies: gedit : Depends: gedit-common (< 3.11) but 3.12.2-0ubuntu1~trusty1 is to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages. daniel@daniel-pc:~$
I followed all the code seen at http://howtoubuntu.org/things-to-do-after-installing-ubuntu-14-10-utopic-unicorn, but after I noticed that many basic programs (like getedit and nautilus) had the gnome style instead of the unity style, I removed the PPAs from the GUI software and Updates.
sudo apt-get install edubuntu-desktop-ed to get the programs found in edubuntu, but after it changed the theme and backgrounds I followed the instructions here: How remove all programs comes from a package?, selecting programs I did not want from the list that it returned. I run

Its core feature set includes syntax highlighting of source code, auto indentation and printing and print preview support. . gedit is also extensible through its plugin system, which currently includes support for spell checking, comparing files, viewing CVS ChangeLogs, and adjusting indentation levels.

So it says gedit is installed, but it isn't. I tried to uninstall the Gnome version of gedit by doing `sudo apt-get remove gedit=' and the version number, but I don't remember it.

EDIT: Image of nautulus now, which is what gedit looked like before uninstall: link look at the menu bar. It lookes like gnome, not default unity. Also I would like a general solution for all programs affected by this, not just gedit and nautilus (though I don't know if there are any).
