error opening file “imagine_layout.ixw". Error 5

When starting ERDAS IMAGINE the error message "error opening file “imagine_layout.ixw". Error 5“ is displayed. After choosing the “Ok for all” option ERDAS IMAGINE opens, but it keeps showing the following error message whenever an image file is opened: 

“Error: File I/O operation failed: only 0 of 56 bytes processed. Error no. 112: There is not enough space on the disk”.


The user’s ERDAS IMAGINE $HOME folder is probably set to a folder which is full and has no space available. Removing files from the $HOME folder to make disk space available will allow ERDAS IMAGINE to start and work normally.
