    Fies is a Portuguese word. My 7.6 menu has a selection Files, just above that for gedit.
    I cannot find neither Fies nor Files within a untouched V7.6.0.

    At MainMenu>Accessories>Files on my LiveUSB or my original LiveDVD.
    Just above gedit.

    Going back to what was hinted at in post #8.

    I took a fresh, unmodified liveUSB of Knoppix 7.6.0, i.e. having gedit 3.14 and nautilus 3.18.

    I did a reload of Synaptic . Synaptic said an upgrade of gedit to 3.18 was available. Did the upgrading.

    Everything is smooth for gedit, either from the Menu shortcut or from a Terminal.

    This not working here, yet anyway.

    Klaus K possibly doing a number of upgrades behind the scenes.

    Thanks for the update regarding the upgrade of gedit to v3.18. For me as a casual computer user, the post #7 is already a fix as I don't do either GNOME, gedit or nautilus. In effect, the ls command and vim are my all-round file browser and text editor, respectively; gedit is merely the fallback of leafpad and is used to check if I screw up the GTK-related stuff. However, I definitely will put the upgrade of gedit on my to-do list just for the sake of compatibility. Thumbs-up!

    You can also download the relevant i386 packages from one of the mirrors listed in debian.org. Then open them with gdebi to install.


    For the unmodified liveUSB, Synaptic itself did offer upgrades for gedit and gedit-common . Surprisng, but it did. I had "consider recoomended as dependencies" unchecked in Synaptic Preferences, maybe that helped.


    For the liveUSB which I had used previously for the downgrading and "fixing" operations, I removed gedit packages 3.14, nautilus packages 3.14 and gir1.2-xxx 3.14 with Synaptic. Then went to debian.org to fetch gedit 3.18, nautilus 3.18 and gir1.2-xxx 3.18 for retropedaling. The end results are the same.


    For gedit, note that gir1.2-gtksource-3.0 must be upgraded to 3.18 before installing gedit 3.18. Synaptic did that itself for the unmodified lieUSB.

    Download Page for nautilus_3.14.1-2_i386.deb on Intel x86 machines

    If you are running Debian, it is strongly suggested to use a package manager like aptitude or
    synaptic to download and install packages, instead of doing so manually via this website.
    I'm pretty sure this note applies to me.

    It is only a "strong suggestion". I tend to ignore it.

    PS and OT - There is no longer a spell checker here?

    I feel quite comfortable with gdebi after reading this:
