[manjaro] /tmp is too small, cannot install new software

Problem
I have a Manjaro virtual box and I ran into the problem that tmpfs is too small, thus /tmp has not enough space to install a new software.

Solution
I could increase the size of tmpfs with the following command:

$ sudo mount -o remount,size=2G,noatime /tmp

The previous size was 512 MB, now it’s 2 GB. After this I could install JDK 8 :)

Note that these settings are reset when you reboot the machine.
