Hello again.
I tried it and it emptied /tmp but I still can´t start KDE.
It says:
startkde: Could not start ksmserver check your installation
Error: can´t contact kdeinit
/:write failed, filesystem full can´t create /tmp/mcop-gaf (no space 
left on device)
..............pid 627 (artsshell), uid 1002 inumber 211973 on /: 
filesystem full
What to do??
Hope you can give me some other clues.
