So I have never used linux or ubuntu before so at the moment I am just trying it out from a USB drive. My problem is that i would like to save files on the internal hard drive of the computer but i have no idea how. Everythime i try saving something it only gives me an option to save on the USB drive.
When prompted to save something, you will usually (depending on the program) see a dialog box prompting you to click on folders to navigate to the directory in which you want to save a file. On the left hand side of this dialog box, you should see two hard disk volume logos: one for "File System" and one for your internal hard disk. From there, click on the one for your hard disk and navigate to the directory in which you want to save your files.
I now understand your question better. As you may know, the live session typically uses your RAM and then saves any changes you make to the persistence file. Even small changes can take up a lot of space. One thing you can do is create a persistence file on your hard disk and direct the live session to use that persistence file. It is not clear whether you will still run out of room, or if Ubuntu will be smart and write Steam's changes to the persistent file on the hard disk.
