The 100 Mb recommended size for /tmp is far too small and out of date.
Some of the others including / are also too small.
Where is this recommendation?
I ran out of space for krita, had a look, and decided 5Gb would be a
safe over estimate. krita now works.
Prior to the /tmp partition increase I put a symlink in /tmp for Krita's
big directory to the partition with the home directories which happens
to have plenty of space. Crude but effective. You might have difficulty
with variable directory names.
Does krita support $TMPDIR (setting it to a variable where you want
temporary files and programs should use that instead of /tmp)? If not
perhaps the developers would accept patches to make it do so.
I tend to set TMPDIR=$HOME/tmp in order to have my temporary files in
a private directory. In times gone by I encrypted $HOME (right now I
have everything encrypted but I typically don't do that)
