No free space on device - IOError Errno 28]

Hi guys, I try to convert a book into mobi, but somehow it stops after few min.

My setup is a Ubuntu Mate on USB stick and my library is located on an external drive. I do not know why it claims there might be no space. I have plenty.

Might this be related to tmp or other working dirs?

Code:
calibre 3.7  embedded-python: False is64bit: True
Linux-4.16.3-041603-generic-x86_64-with-Ubuntu-17.10-artful Linux ('64bit', '')
('Linux', '4.16.3-041603-generic', '#201804190730 SMP Thu Apr 19 07:32:02 UTC 2018')
Python 2.7.14
Linux: ('Ubuntu', '17.10', 'artful')
Interface language: de
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/calibre/calibre/gui2/actions/convert.py", line 157, in convert_ebook

Yes, conversion copies files out of the library to /tmp and uses /tmp for various intermediate data.

Understood. In my case, I have created a tmpfs on tmp to decrease the wear of my USB stick. Which also explains the limited amount of space.

Is there a possibility to override these "intermediate workding dirs"?

In this case I could move these folders onto the hard drive which has plenty of free space.

In the guide you mention I can find only win and osx. And I guess these env variables exist only on windows. How could I possibly change them in Ubuntu?

Thank you in advance!
