For last few days I am trying hard to sign in but getting failed and a few times I got a message that The home folder has 0 MB space remained so I can't log in ! now please help me to log in. Thank you in advance.

You can switch to console by simultaneously pressing control+alt+F1 keys. Once in the console, login with your credentials. Create at least 400MB disk space in your home by removing few files. You can try the following once you login:
1) du -sh * 2) Identify the large files, say, in Downloads you have ubuntu.iso, then
  • cd Downloads/
  • rm -ri ubuntu.iso
3) Repeat the above until you retrieve enough free space Now, restart the laptop and login through KDE
