Pax Security - seting flags to a directory

So I'm testing Arch's linux-grsec Kernel and it seems Steam has a few issues with it. I could make Steam to run with the following command:

setfattr -n user.pax.flags -v "PemRS" /home/amanda/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam
However, I want to set permissions for everything in Steam's folder and I can't do so. How should I proceed?

Here's how I already tried:

setfattr -n user.pax.flags -v "PemRS" /home/amanda/.local/share/Steam/*
But after taking a random library to find out if it worked, here's the result:

[amanda@amanda ~]$ getfattr -n user.pax.flags /home/amanda/.steam/steam/ubuntu12_32/
/home/amanda/.steam/steam/ubuntu12_32/ user.pax.flags: No such attribute


EDIT: Solved
