  • just create a dir as root then change ownership to your normal user ... sudo mkdir /some/dir then issue sudo chown myname:myname /some/dir edit myname with your actual login name Nov 2 '19 at 13:46

  • open up a terminal ( control + alt + t) and issue df -m now look for the column Mounted on with the value '/' ... this row is important ... its your root partition and every dir on it will share is available space which is show on column Use% of that row ... on output of df -m if you have multiple partitions with enough Available space yes you can use another partition just avoid once with Filesystem values of udev, tmpfs, /dev/loop* as they are for system use only Nov 3 '19 at 13:45
