Sorry Jensor, but i do not have or use Wheezy so i do not know the menu structure so try to find a menu item named "software sources" or if you do not have that on the menu, use "synaptics" and in it's menu there should be a "software sources" item, open that and enable the " extras " repository.

I managed to find and download gedit-3.4.2.tar.xz
But cannot figure out how to get it working. See below:

jack@debian:~/Downloads$ ls
gedit-3.4.2.tar.xz
jack@debian:~/Downloads$ tar xf gedit-3.4.2.tar.xz
jack@debian:~/Downloads$ ls
gedit-3.4.2 gedit-3.4.2.tar.xz
jack@debian:~/Downloads$ gedit
bash: gedit: command not found
jack@debian:~/Downloads$ install gedit-3.4.2
install: missing destination file operand after `gedit-3.4.2'
Try `install --help' for more information.
jack@debian:~/Downloads$

What should the destination file operand be?

That xz file is zipped:

gunzip gedit-3.4.2.tar.xz

you should now have a tar file

tar -xvf gedit-3.4.2.tar

You may then have a folder of files. Probably source code. Which will need compiling and will have a lot of dependencies.

I the resulting file is a .deb then

sudo dpkg --install gedit-3.4.2.deb

`But, really, on Debian Gedit has too many dependencies to be a good choice. It depens on the Gnome desktop and you will end up installing all of that, but ot using it.

Geany is lighter and standalone.
