    Hello utu,

    To please you and bring back nautilus and still have gedit 3.14 working, I now did this:

    1. With Synaptic:
    Removed libnautilusextension1a 3.18 (testing)
    Installed libnautilusextension1a 3.14 (stable)

    2. With Synaptic:
    Installed nautilus-data 3.14

    3.
    Downloaded the Debian package:
    nautilus_3.14.1-2_i386.deb

    4. With gdebi:
    Installed the above-mentioned .deb package.

    PS-

    The warning(s) that may now be given by gedit, when opening it, can safely be ignored, I think.

    Otherwise, just do not re-install nautilus. Many (most?) people do not need it anyway.

    I do not think I will risk removing nautilus...

    Am using leafpad for the time being...

    Your suggestions to force Nautilus to 3.14 to agree with data and libs
    sounds very reasonable, but I can't seem to force this with Synaptic.

    Synaptic complains about broken packages, yet doesn't help fix them.
    Synaptic allows forcing libs and data, not claiming about broken pkgs,
    but balks at removing & re-installing nautilus.

    I tried apt-get install , but it can't find nautilus_3.14.1-2_i386.deb

    With your suggestions, I have achieved about a 99% satisfactory solution
    which includes the following:

    1. gedit loads and functions apparently without obvious difficulty using
    MainMenu>Accessories>gedit;

    2. nautilus doesn't appear as a main menu selection, but if accessed via
    a command-line, it loads and functions reasonably. However there are non-
    fatal warnings that appear before the gui kicks in;

    3. If one accesses gedit via a command-line, it is apparent that it too
    produces similar but different non-fatal warnings before a gui appears;
    and finally,

    4. Synaptic seems to display consistent gedit 3.14 and nautilus 3.14 pkgs
    with no mention of broken packages or 3.18 material for either of these.

    I am placated by this solution, but Klaus K may not be satisfied with the
    minor imperfections that would require some additional cosmetic repairs.

    .
    KK nicknamed it Fies, probably to show how much he likes it.

    It is there in Menu > Accessories.

    Fies is a Portuguese word. My 7.6 menu has a selection Files, just above that for gedit.
    Selecting Files from the menu brings up Nautilus just as you suggest.
    Using the gui, the non-fatal warnings are obscured by the gui rapidly appearing.

    In which case, my satisfaction with your fix is 99 and 44/100 %. Same as Ivory soap IIRC.

    Knoppix menu for Files calls up Nautilus; the About entry for the gui which appears refers to the gui as Files.
    Some history which applies: https://en.opensuse.org/GNOME_Files#History
