I had the problem with disk space too. I removed the Kubuntu-desktop
and went to just plain KDE and added only OOWrite and OOCalc which
are the only parts of OO I use.  
If you shutdown and reboot after daily, you might get by with less
swap and free up a little disk space that way for /.
Is your /home partition really larger than needs be?
