How to mount NTFS partition as executable on Linux

5 September 2015 No Comment

Hello Internet.

So i was trying to install a new Steam folder on a removable NTFS partition and it gave me the error.
New Steam library folder must be on a filesystem mounted with execute permissions

The solution was to mount it like this:
sudo mount -t ntfs -o fmask=0022,dmask=0000,uid=1000,gid=1000 /dev/sdc1 /media/USER/Drive

Of course you would have to change “sdc1”, “USER”, and “Drive”
