[SOLVED] Steam Snap not able to acces second Partition

I installed steam using snap and have the games installed on a external partition. Steam fails to access the external drive  and I've tried everything starting from checking permission, connecting ALL snap plugs, disabeling apparmor. I think i may be an error with mounting in FSTAB.

I have the settings:
UUID=0123456789     /media/hallo      ext4         defaults, rw, user, exec   0 0
and tried to find a solution here:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Steam/Troubleshooting and searched for hours on google. But steam keeps fail to enter the mount location

Has anyone an idea how to fix, proceede or what else I could try?

UUID=0123456789     /media/hallo      ext4         defaults, rw, user, exec   0 0

Did you transcribe the fstab entry by hand?  As it has additional whitespace in the fourth field.  I take it you have obfuscated the UUID?  Does the output of `mount` show an entry for /media/hallo?

Re: [SOLVED] Steam Snap not able to acces second Partition

It's not a steam issue, it's just how snaps work. Totally normal

See, for instance, https://askubuntu.com/questions/964377/ … -partition or https://askubuntu.com/questions/1226304 … pplication

Re: [SOLVED] Steam Snap not able to acces second Partition

normally when a snap is connected with nap connect steam:removable-media it works (this is default for this snap and I tried connecting ALL plugs and installed it with - "sudo snap install steam --devmode" to disable sandboxing)
at least that's my exerience. I had steam installed on ubuntu using the store (i think thats snap in pricipal) it worked just fine.

Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.


(A works at time B)  && (time C > time B ) ≠  (A works at time C)

I think I will try to install it outside snap  (tried flatpack too, but this one was not able to load the fonts so I could not enter the menu and try). Thanks to all for your tips.
