ubuntu markedly slowing down: "more disc space needed"


posted on the ubuntu forum but no solution yet.

on Intrepid (8.1 ubuntu), it is suddenly gotten very slow, and some icons the program fails to start. I get warning "more disc space is needed".

Originally Intrepid installed using wubi, my windows XP on NTFS format.

Is this same as "swap file"?, how do I increase so the programs run smoothly? Is there a command I should enter?

Start by issuing a
Code:
df -h
and posting the output. This will help us start with the troubleshooting process. also any log information would be of use.
