I gotten a new Int 7200rpm HDD and new Encloser recently and how do I use the Drive for my Steam Games. I did a Backup yesterday after I formatted the HDD to Ext4FS.
This issue is the Drive is owned by Root. Every time I manually move the SteamLibrary over using Root the owner changes to Root instead of keeping them same.
I did this with a another Distro I was using at the time with now dead drive.
I used Gparted to Partition and Format the thing. So how do change the owner from Root to Me?
Sorry if I put this in the wrong place.
You may want to read the whole guide instead of just the quoted part for the full context/procedure.
- Change the folder permissions so user(s) can use it. Depending on your use case, you can either:
change the owner to the sole user
sudo chown $USER:$USER /path/to/folder
change the permission globally
sudo chmod ugo+rwx /path/to/folder
Followed the CheatSheet on the Wiki and changed the Owner to over to [my name] and I had to run Thunar as root to changed the group. After that I was able to move two games to SteamLibrary on the Ext HDD.
Sure some commands to type. At first I could move the game until I change the group.
Thanks for your help.
Well everyone helped me solved this. And I looked at the Wiki as well.
