From what I can see you are looking at the instructions for Debian.
They need some adaptation:

sudo will serve you perfectly well, as far as I can see. Plus, being
root may give you troubles with the X server...

^^^^ and there
goes the problem of being root here.
Don't do these things as root unless they don't work with sudo.
gedit is just a text editor, you didn't need to install it. kwrite will
do the same job:
sudo kwrite /etc/apt/sources.list
(it should be kdesudo kwrite /etc/apt/sources.list but I always forget
which graphical sudo is the right one - help anyone please :) - but
kwrite works for me with sudo)
Try again without logging as root and tell us if you got any luck or
