Steam cannot create library on rw,exec disk

I have installed Steam as descripted the official wiki. In my laptop I have a /dev/sda 128G ssd disk mounted as root (/) and a 900GB hdd disk mounted as /internal-hdd/linux-data. Here is my /etc/fstab:

LABEL=root              /               ext4            rw,relatime,stripe=256  0 1
# /dev/sdb2
/dev/sdb2             /internal-hdd/linux-data  ext4    rw,exec  0  0

When i enter ranger and go to /internal-hdd/linux-data in the bottom left corner I get:

drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 0 (etc...)

I can normally mkdir and do stuff in this folder as a normal user, but when I try to make a steam library folder there, I get a pop-up message:

Failed to create a folder, this drive is read only

Re: Steam cannot create library on rw,exec disk

Is your mount point owned by root?
You may have to chmod 775 your mount point so that it is writable by all local users.
