    Re: Need someone help please.

    Why is your root partition only 3.3 G. When you installed you didn't make the partition big enough. A typical Ubuntu install on / uses about 4G not including files in your home folder. You need to run Ubuntu from a live cd and use Gparted to resize the root partition /dev/sdb5.

    While ptn107 was replying, I converted the output of the of the df -h command to something a little more readable.
    Code:
    Filesystem        Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on 
    /dev/sdb5         3.3G 3.1G 4.5M  100% / 
    udev              996M 4.0K 996M    1% /dev 
    tmpfs             402M 804K 401M    1% /run 
    none              5.0M 0 5.   0M    0% /run/lock 
    none             1004M 1000K 1003M  1% /run/shm 
    none              100M 60K  100M    1% /run/user 
    /dev/sdb3         120G 92G   28G   77% /media/mani/F4C083E0C083A786 
    /dev/sdb1          14G 9.1G 5.0G   65% /media/mani/C23054EA3054E747
    As ptn107 said, root was only given 3.3G.

    Use whatever OS or desktop works for you. Dual boot or use VMs if you want. Backup your computer regularly, and definitely before upgrading, partitioning, or installing an OS.

    No support requests by PM please.
