open dash in Ubuntu 11.10 and search for disk, then click on the Disk usage analyzer to check your disk usage and available space.

you can also open a terminal session by pressing CTRL + ALT + T and typing in df please post the output here for review.

sounds like you are out of space on your hdd. do you have another drive or an external drive you can use?

result coming like that
what can i do now
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda8 20336900 8762312 10541528 46% /

can you check your settings in your application to see where downloaded files are being sent? how large if the file you are downloading. What application are you using to download?

your terminal output shows that your drive sda8 has 10541528 kb available. using
http://egret.net/kb__mb.htm this shows it to convert to just under 11 gb. try selecting another drive to save your downloads to.

in transmission please click on from the top menu Edit > Preferences > and check the "Save to Location" and make sure your correct drive is selected. Try selecting another location on another drive. Click other there in the drop down to do that.

To get human friendly output please use

df -h

Thanks Nathan Heafner, that solved my question.
