By default steam library will be installed to your home directory when installed on linux. Unfortunately my drive only 128GB, not enough to install most AAA title. Fortunately I have NAS server with large storage. It would be nice to put game library on this server. That way I can share it between linux and windows (hopefully).
- Create NFS share on your NAS. This is an example of my configuration. It can only be accessed from ip address
192.168.88.10(my desktop pc).
- Mount your NFS share into local directory. You can use
mountcommand or add entry on your
# /etc/fstab # ... 192.168.88.2:/mnt/md0/games /home/zackad/Games nfs defaults,noatime,users,exec 0 0
- Make sure that you add
execat the end of option, otherwise steam will complain about your mount missing execute permission
- Open steam Settings -> Downloads -> Steam Library Folder
- Click ‘+’ button to add library folder
- Select ‘Let me choose another location’
- Choose your folder to store steam library. Make sure that folder you choose is empty.
- Now you can use this new library to store your game or application
