Issue Report: symlinking Steamfolder to a different partition doesn work
I do have a separate partition for my /home but its not large enough for installing games, so i tried to symlink the Steam folder "/home/<username>/.local/share/Steam/ (its the folder where Steam is actually installed) to another partition which is ext4.
Simply said: I have a Symlink thats called "/home/<username>/.local/share/Steam" that points to "/media/Linuxgames/Steam" where a bigger ext4 partition is mounted.
I found some other Threads reporting these problems but mostly it was like linking the wrong folder or linking to NTFS etc.
So when I do this correct symlinking, Steam isn't working. It says "Couldn't find Steam content, did you move it?"
Then I can select the folder or klick reinstall but neither is working. Selecting a folder reports that the folder is invalid, choosing reinstallation reports an Error: "Couldn't set up Steam data - please contact technical support"
Maybe theres a Problem with symlinks? Is it that Steam does or doesn't resolve symlinks?
Or did I simply move the wrong folder?
Console output stays quiet...
