    Installing Mathematica on Ubuntu 13.04

    Error message: Extraction failed. No space left on .4849
    .Removing temporary files.

    I run the following commands:
    owner@ubuntu:~/Downloads$ cd .
    owner@ubuntu:~/Downloads$ cd ..
    owner@ubuntu:~$ cd Documents/
    owner@ubuntu:~/Documents$ cd Mathematica/
    owner@ubuntu:~/Documents/Mathematica$ sudo sh ./Mathematica_9.0.1_LINUX.sh
    Mathematica Secured 9.0.1 for LINUX Installer Archive

    Verifying archive integrity.

    I'm certain there is enough disk space. So I am confused about this error message. Can anyone help? Thanks.

    If you install with sudo mathematica get installed in /usr/local/ Are you sure you have enough space there? (as oppose to your home directory) Try run the install script without sudo and see what happens (this will install Mathematica in your home)

    What command do I run without sudo? Just sh ./Mathematica_9.0.1_LINUX.sh?

    Still says the same thing.

    Re: Installing Mathematica on Ubuntu 13.04

    How can I check how much space I have left? This is really strange. I seriously doubt there is no space. Maybe I didn't allocate enough space to my home drive? How can I change that?
    Sorry these are super elementary questions...

    You can check free space with the df command e.g.

    Code:
    df -h
    According to this page, it needs 5.5GB --> http://www.wolfram.com/mathematica/f...uirements.html

    I just checked and
    owner@ubuntu:~/Documents/Mathematica$ df -h
    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/loop0 17G 16G 846M 96% /

    none 100M 28K 100M 1% /run/user
    /dev/sda2 581G 109G 473G 19% /host


    How may I install Mathematica in the /host drive?
