Disk space problem even adding a steam library folder
Hi !

I want to install Team Fortress 2, but the I only I've go a message I don't have enough disk. space:

Disk space required: 10958 MB
Disk space Available: 1315MB

It is true I only have 1.3GB free in my root partition, but I have a lot of free space in my /home partiion. Acording to df:

/dev/sda1 15G 14G 1.3G 92% /
/dev/md0 440G 281G 137G 68% /home

I've added a "Steam Library Folder" from the home partition, but the problem persists :-/

I don't think TF2 allows library selection - at least that is my experience. How come the Steam default library is on your root partition?
jjmarin Jan 25, 2013 @ 4:06pm 
The library folders I have are:
/home/jjmarin/apps/SteamLibrary 0 0 bytes 146.85 GB
/root/.local/share/Steam 0 0 bytes 1.38 GB

I wanted to try steam in linux asap, and with the hurry I didn't notiice I started from a root terminal that I used it to install it :-)

lol, whenever i install something from the terminal, i use the sudo command, that way it ask's for ur password, does the job, then auto switches back to normal user terminal, makes for less troubles lol, and im also lazy and dont want to have to constantly jump between xterms lol
