If I did understand you correctly then using symlinks that point to the external drive should be the solution you are looking for. Note: If you already have an existing .steam and .local/share/Steam folder, then copy it to the external drive before running the commands.

If you're really just looking for some games like that, just go get Steam for linux. There are now more than ever, plenty of Games available for Linux than there used to be, including Portal and about 100 other puzzlers. It's available in the software center, or you can go to Steam's official site to get the latest bleeding edge version.

The problem starts around line 19 in the script "steam.sh.": STEAMROOT="$(cd "${0%/*}" && echo $PWD)" STEAMDATA="$STEAMROOT" $STEAMROOT can become empty here effectively making the rm -rf "$STEAMROOT/"* further into the script the same as rm -rf "/"*. There are patches showing up and there is a lot wrong with this script. Easiest to change and ...

Update: This will make the "video" button and the "rog" button next to the keypad also launch steam. Will look into that when I have the time. This is how I made the "Steam button" work on my ASUS ROG G751. I would not be surprised if there is a simpler way to do this :) I am using xbindkeys to bind the steam key to a script. The script will start steam if ...

I could solve it by installing the 32-bit version of libnss3: sudo apt-get install libnss3:i386 That addresses the following error in ~/.steam/error.log: [0102/162746:ERROR:nss_util.cc(1018)] Failed to load NSS libraries. (I'm still not sure why the problem does not occur after a reboot.)

I found the answer on http://chakraos.org/forum/viewtopic.php?id=13247 You have to do the following on terminal and if it doesn't work: rm ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6 rm ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgcc_s.so.1 Go to the folder and found the ...
