I created a partition on my second hard drive for steam games. I added a steam library there and successfully downloaded a few games. After I rebooted, the library disappeared. I tried to add it again but I always get the error

- Other solutions suggest renaming
steamapps. I already have
Here is the relevant line from
UUID=8c6ead8f-bf5f-41b9-864e-d743ad374636 /run/media/marcel/games ext4 defaults,exec,user,nofail 0 0
The partiton gets mounted to
/run/media/marcel/ and everything under it is owned by
755. Everything seems to be executable by steam.
