After a fresh install It seems that the ubuntu installer made only 2 partitions, a 13GB swap and a 100GB root /

In the / partition I have the Home, but I only lets me store less than 20GB and after that the system says it is full.

At the beginning I thought that maybe the installation program made 1 home partition with 20GB and another for / but then I started a live USB to use GPARTED to fix it and I realize there are only one ext4 partition.

So my question is how do I get more room in my Home folder?

Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
udev            7,8G     0  7,8G   0% /dev
tmpfs           1,6G   18M  1,6G   2% /run
/dev/sdb2       102G   18G   79G  19% /

    You state it only lets you store <20GB of data; so what is the disk space condition, eg df -hi (disk free, human output & inode info). If you wanted a separate I would have made one at the start/install (I always do) – guiverc Jan 23 '18 at 22:22
