Cannot copy files to steam folder

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


When I try to copy some files from my steam folder I have this error. I am the only administrator on my laptop and I don’t know why it says this. I can copy any other files from my PC to USB, folder to folder, etc. Why I can’t copy the files from steam ? Why it asked about system administrator ?

Thank you !

Unable to copy /home/alex/Steam/ to /usr/bin/steam, please contact your system administrator.

Cannot copy files to steam folder



This is a problem because Arch Linux policy ignore the auto update of binary out of package manager.

Open a terminal. Then, run this command;

sudo chattr -i /usr/bin/steam

Also, you can use “pacman” to update steam.

pacman –S <packagename>

This will surely solve this issue.
