Can't log in Xfce

Hi there, the strange fact is that I have two pc (1 laptop and 1 desktop) both with Xfce4 and both where every time I try to log I am on the prompt command line asking to get in, but if I try to write "startxfce4" I get this error:

1) in the laptop witrh Debian Jessie

sudo startxfce4
sudo: impossible to write in /var/lib/sudo/ts/sabtho: space finished on the device
/usr/bin/startxfce4: starting X server 

Fatal server error
(EE) could not write pid to lock file in /tmp/.tX0-lock
Please consult The X.Org Foundation support

xinit: giving up
xinit: unable to connect to X server: connection refused
xinit: server error

Then I have try to update the system but I've got also some error like this

impossible to write in /var/lib/sudo/ts/sabtho

2) in the desktop with Jessie

/usr/bin/startxfce4: Starting X server
/user/bin/startxfce4: 118:exec: xinit: not found

what can I do?

Re: Can't log in Xfce

sudo startxfce4

First of all, you should not run "sudo startxfce4". Xfce is a userspace DE. Run it as just "startxfce4" (as you do on the desktop). It is much safer this way as well.

impossible to write in /var/lib/sudo/ts/sabtho: space finished on the device

For the laptop, you seem to be out of free disk space on one of your partitions.

xinit: not found

For the desktop, you appear to be missing a package (xinit) or there is some corruption somewhere.
