Should I reinstall my linux mint and make it 40GB?
If doing that is not a big issue for you then I would say YES With 12 gb you're running out of gas
Okay, I did 12gb to try out linux. I am liking it anyway so now I will dedicated my time with it. :D

That would help, but you could also boot from a live DVD or USB and then use GParted to make the existing partition bigger.
do you know any resources that I can follow to make my partition bigger?

honestly 12GB for a root partition is rather on the smallest side.

You could try running Disk Usage analyzer (baobab) to get a graphical overview of your disk usage and hopefully identify what is taking up the space.

Re: How to remove files to add space to root

You're saying you also removed old kernels, is that true? Old kernels are a common cause of too little space left in root. I removed old kernels . I did that with this code: dpkg-query -W -f '${Version}\n' 'linux-image-[^g]*'|sort -u|sed -e '/^$/d' -e 's/\~[^~]*$//' -e 's/\.[^.]*$//' -e "/$(uname -...

Re: How to remove files to add space to root

If you do remove old kernels don't remove all of them, always leave the last one that worked. You can also look in /var/log to see if you havbe any huge log files, which also indicate something else to look at. There may also be some big bit of app software you don't use like gimp that can be remov...

Try sudo apt clean to clean up your apt archive. Also if you use Timeshift with it's default settings, it will save the snapshots under root. If this is the case, delete some of those.
