A better way is to just open the command window, *don't* use su, and run:

gksudo gedit

I don't know how that happened.  But like I said, you don't have to use

fsck.  With the disks unmounted (best way is to do it from the Live CD),
You have to run something like:

fsck /dev/sda1

sda1 should be replaced with the actual partition you want to check
(it'll be sd then a letter and digit).  With the disks mounted, run:

ls /dev/sd*

If you don't know which partition to check, you can do them all.  Just
make sure the partition is unmounted.

As Tim said, if you have questions about fsck, feel free to ask.
