Write protection error when creating a new Steam Library folder


I’m trying to create a new Steam Library folder outside of my home directory (my /home partition isn’t sized appropriately for apps to be installed on it), but when I do it gives me an error saying that the folder isn’t writable. I tried using sudo chmod +xwr /SteamLibrary with no success.

I’m running Arch Linux, and I installed steam through the multilib package.

TIA : )

You probably need to chown it to your user. Something like:

sudo chown lychee:lychee /SteamLibrary
