Hi,

someone might be able to help you if you provide the version numbers of "old" and "new" versions.

You ought to install an older one, however "while what you see is the new default look of gedit, the changes to the code base should allow us to have far better integration with the environment we are running on and allow us to easily have different UI on OSX, Windows, Unity, etc".

Pan is right, generally can uninstall a version and install an older version. Be aware that some apps require associated dependencies that may or may not be met.

I've had to change apps over the years for this sort of thing. I get used to something and they go and change it.

gtk3 has went to client side window decorations. You'll need a gtk3 theme that supports that. A lot a people dislike it. Your second option is to uninstall gedit and try geany. File-roller > Xarchiver, etc.
