Earlier today I would get an error about not being able to read the users Xsession file or something when I tried to start any Administrator program from the menu. sudo worked fine, but gksudo (the graphical password entry thing) didn’t.
Solution: full root partition.
Tips to free up space:
- Restart. This clears /tmp
- sudo apt-get autoremove && sudo apt-get clean (remove cached and unnecessary packages)
- check /var/tmp
- Maybe uninstall a hefty program or two. Games take up a *lot* of space.
- Don’t be like me and make a 10gb / partition on a terabyte hard drive [facehand].
