The default steam libary is in ~/.local/share/Steam. I'm not sure if it's possible to change but if you changed it you would know where it is.

  • can I copy those file to my flash disk, and after re-install my Ubuntu, I just need to place those folders back?

  • @AdiYono Well I think so. You might have to click on download but it will finish instantly.
