Ubuntu 13.04 Trying to make a new directory to install games!
I'm having trouble trying to make a new folder to put the games on my 1TB Hard Drive. I have my Home directory on my SSD, and so do I with steam. For some weird reason I can't make the directory, because when I do I get this weird looking window. As you can see on the picture
Sorry for the website to put the picture, I don't know of a better one.

Looks pretty strange :D
Have you tried adding a directory via game install instead ?

I might have the wrong idea about what your wanting but heres what I did, root unmount the 1TB, then edit /etc/fstab and change umask=000 for your data drive that will let programs execute off it, backup any steam games that are installed on your linux client delete local content, then when restoreing a backup it will ask you where you want to store your new game repository i just put mine on /mnt/750gig/linuxsteam (example) after that all games that you restore or install will go to that directory.
Here is my example line (/etc/fstab)
/dev/sdb1 /mnt/750gig ntfs-3g umask=000 1 0
This may help you it may not.

sounds like ;)
His windows to choose the directory in steam is totally messed up and not useable if you look at the screenshot

Yes indeed. The window is messed up. But I'll try installing a game, backing it up, and restoring it, to a different drive. Maybe that window is not messed up.

EDIT: I think it works! I made a folder in the drive and I was able to click it and install. I made the folder manually.
