Install "Foto" image and album Manager app in elementary os luna

"Foto" is a new elementary style image and album viewer app. It is very light weight when compared to  shotwell - the default image and album viewer app of elementary. As you know, I'm using a daily build of elementary os and I had upgraded it. But before completing the upgrade, I computer got switched off and the update failed. Then I found that one of the dependency of shotwell is causing the issue and I'm not able to run the update or install any other packages.

How to fix "Cannot establish any listening sockets - Make sure an X server isn't already running" error in linux

Today I had a problem. I have allocated around 30 GB of hard disk for my elementary os installation. It was almost full and only around 110 MB free space was there. But I had run the software update and shut down the computer. But after some time, when I restarted the computer, I was not able to access the Graphical User Interface. I am stuck.

Then I tried accessing the another terminal (not GUI, but tty) using key shortcut Ctrl+Alt+F1 I was able to access the terminal. I gave my username and password and I was able to login to the terminal. Then only thing not working is GUI (Hint :- issue with X windows system). I ran the command df -h and found that / is full (there is no free space).
