"quickly configure dependencies" fails when gedit is running

Bug Description

When running "quickly configure dependencies", quickly opens a text editor with a temporary file and processes the file’s content after the editor is closed. However, if gedit is already running, it will open another instance and return immediately. Thus, quickly will never see the file’s changed content.

The attached patch works around this by adding an argument "--standalone" if gedit is used as editor.
