Steam cannot write to filesystem

Hello again,

Ive added a 2nd disk to my system and mounted in fstab with exec flag with the intention to host my library there. When i want to create a new
Library, steam claims it cannot write to the filesystem. I followed the instructions on arch wiki here under 7.2 Steam/Troubleshooting - ArchWiki
To no avail. Any clues?

Hi,

You need to add permissions so that the user can write to it.

e.g: sudo chown -R $USER:$USER /path/to/mounted/ssd
