Cannot startup LMDE

After problems with my network printer I followed a thread to update a file as follows.

I'm sorry that didn't work for you, orys. I'm not sure what else you might be missing to perform the compile.

I have volunteered to help maintain python-cups but am not sure how long it will take to get new packages uploaded and available.

For the time being, I've just built i386 and amd64 debian/sid packages of python-cups_1.9.61: ... 1_i386.deb ... _amd64.deb

This has resulted in the log files becoming so large that the system will not boot. I have tried using the live cd to access the var file and found that both the syslog and kern.log files are 3.1gb each. I have tried to empty the files on the LMDE partition by opening the var folder in a terminal and using > /var/log/syslog but keep getting the message permission denied. Any help would be appreciated.
