From the Kali documentation page:
Quote:
Kali (...) is NOT a recommended distribution if you’re unfamiliar with Linux or are looking for a general-purpose Linux desktop distribution for development, web design, gaming, etc.
(...)
Even for experienced Linux users, Kali can pose some challenges.
Now, you ask for help to install gedit. This is a clear indication that you are unfamiliar with Linux, and therefore Kali is not for you.

Having said that, here are a few clues:

You might have gedit installed already. In this case, most probably your PATH doesn't include it.

If that is not the case, you could run apt search gedit, then use apt install to install the package that contains gedit.

Even better, use a different editor such as nano or vi.

gedit is a text editor. It does not put Kali in full screen mode.

One needs to be running X in order to run gedit. Try sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list instead, but make sure to make a backup of that file first. If you make a mistake you'd almost certainly break package management.
