    Just install the ubuntu package
    sudo apt-get install gedit (or use synpatic).

    Installing rpms on Debian based distros can be problematic. You can convert rpms to Debian packages using an app called alien but the resulting package is not guaranteed to install or work flawlessly. Personally I would just use the packages in the Ubuntu software repositories.
