Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

No, the partition isn't 100% used. I have saved a lot of data after the problem occured. In fact, I have only one OS on the machine, and lot of space ought to be empty. And as far as I know, the /tmp folder never occupies any memory. Am I wrong?

I recieved this error too because my XF86Config was wrong configured..
check out xorg.conf or XF86Config in /etc/X11/xorg.conf or /etc/X11/XF86Config if the settings there are right for your system..
