I'm running KUbuntu 10.04.1 - I click on "System Settings" from the KMenu, click on the advanced tab, and start up "Service Manager". In the lower pane, I see "Free Space Notifier" is running.

Update: It might be a monitor for the free disk space in your home partition. Can anyone confirm this?

Maybe it monitors the free disk space in my home partition?? Link to Fedora Package with the same name – M. Tibbits Jan 13 '11 at 5:49
I edited your question for you to update it to the real question. Note that people are not going to read the comments on the main page. – Javier Rivera Jan 13 '11 at 7:54
@Javier, I removed my other comment & undid your changes. I'm still not sure if the Fedora package is related to the Ubuntu package. – M. Tibbits Jan 13 '11 at 7:58

According to the package description, it monitors free disk space on the Home partition and warns you on low disk space.

KDE Daemon module for low disk space

This is a small KDED module that monitors free disk space on the home directory partition and shows a warning dialog when it runs too low, with a configurable limit and the possibility to postpone.
