/tmp full...already...confused

Postby forbinproject on Sun Aug 26, 2012 5:36 pm

I haven't even been running LMDE for a week and I've started encountering troubles with the /tmp folder being full. I've run Bleachbit as a regular user and as root and I'm still getting the problem. I can't even download a document from my gmail account! What is the problem? What do I need to do to fix it?

This is the error message: There is not enough room on the disk to save /tmp/8kGEfg+M.doc.part. Remove unnecessary files from the disk and try again, or try saving in a different location.

Curious what happens when you run your OS, open a terminal and "df -h /tmp" w/o the quotes. What does it say ... what's the output ?
