Disk Space "/" full and not able to download software. (Bodhi Linux)

Am I doing something wrong? How to I clear space?

Welcome to LQ,

Based on this df output, nothing is full.

/dev/sda5 is where you have root /

That shows at 81% use.

Perhaps you can post more details about what you did to encounter the error you report in your thread title, and post some more details about that.

Actually i had codeblocks installed and then i was installing eclipse and i got a 'disk space "/" 99% used' and eclipse wasn't installed so i deleted the files and still its harder for me to install new software as the disk space "/" shoots to 99% as soon as iI install any new software.

It looks like you have 1.7gig free on a 10gig drive.

Try one package at a time and see how much space it eats up.

Better output using df -h by the way.

Those packages should not exhaust your drive space.

Take a look at /temp to see if you have been accumulating garbage in /temp. If so delete the garbage and try again.

This.
It is not impossible to run a GUI with so little space, but one needs to be careful about what one installs. Snaps are probably right out, and cross-platform bloatware like codeblocks.
Your other thread suggests that your /home is significantly larger? Maybe you need to re-partition? IMHO a separate $HOME is not required.

Original poster thinks that software is normally installed in /home.
