Disk full problem, but it is not in 12.04

Have tried to delete all trash contents permanent a lot of other things, but still full.
If looking into system monitor sometimes it looks like I've got 1GB free but system "eats" it up in a few minutes.

I do not fully understand: the output of df /home says that you have no free space and use 100%. Where do you think is the 1G? –  xubuntix Aug 7 '12 at 8:46

Can you check if there is any process that should be consuming all that disk space? It happened to me, having my torrent client open and he just keeps on filling the disk. Check if you have the package manager downloading updates on the background and kill these processes.

ps -ax #Should list all the processes running, try and find out something, or post here the last lines of the ouput of this command

Hope this helps.

Cheers
