how do I re-gedit sources.list


I had to disable cd in sources.list so I put a # in the right place. I want to take it back off since I am done installing the current drivers for my printer. This is what I get (running Debian 7 Wheezy):
Code:
 root@DavidLee1A:/etc/apt# dir
apt.conf.d	  preferences.d  sources.list~	 trustdb.gpg  trusted.gpg.d
listchanges.conf  sources.list	 sources.list.d  trusted.gpg
root@DavidLee1A:/etc/apt# gedit sources.list

(gedit:16158): EggSMClient-WARNING **: Failed to connect to the session manager: None of the authentication protocols specified are supported


** (gedit:16158): WARNING **: Could not connect to session bus
How am I supposed to get back into gedit in the command line?

Thank you! Used VIM after a quick review on vimtutor (been a while since I used vim) and it worked.
