command to get 10 largest file in directory

du -a /var | sort -n -r | head -n 10

An update:

found a nice tool called ncdu

to install

sudo apt-get install ncdu

then run ncdu in a directory it will show all directories inside sorted by size descending!

then you can select directory/file with arrow and press d to delete
