    What errors are occurring? You don't give enough information to allow anyone to help you. What happens when you type sudo apt-get install gnome-desktop?

    Mate and Gnome 3 definitely used to clash when you attempted to install them on the same machine. I don't know if that has been resolved by now. Other than that, what hazel said.
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    It might be called ubuntu-gnome-desktop. Try running apt-cache search gnome-desktop. This will show all packages with that in the name.

    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
    gnome : Depends: gnome-core (= 1:3.8+4ubuntu3) but it is not going to be installed
    Depends: gedit (>= 3.4) but 2.30.5+qiana is to be installed
    Depends: gnome-documents (>= 0.4) but it is not going to be installed
    Depends: nautilus-sendto (>= 3.0) but it is not going to be installed
    Depends: gnome-tweak-tool (>= 3.4) but it is not going to be installed
    Depends: gedit-plugins (>= 3.4) but it is not going to be installed
    Depends: gnome-shell-extensions (>= 3.4) but it is not going to be installed
    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
