1.1.59 gives an error when i try to open the game: cannot create directory: permission denied(steam)(ubuntu)[solved]

Post by pooyana »

I just installed the game and when I click the play button from steam it gives the following error:

filesystem error: cannot create directory: permission denied [/home/pooya/.factorio]
path1: /home/pooya/.factorio

I tried to create the folder manually but it gave the same error but for creating the .lock file.
my os is Linux-ubuntu 22.04
edit: so I fixed my problem by uninstalling the snap version of steam and installing it via terminal with

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install steam
if you have any games you don't want to download again you can back them up using steam itself
