Hey, that’s great and I was able to see my files from drive in nautilus. But I can’t copy paste or do any other similar operations on files. It gives out an error “Authorization required”. Why ? I just signed in, right ?
Thank you for this great and helpful article. Ubuntu Online Accounts is a great feature that I’ve always over-looked.
Insyc is a much better alternative than over grive. Not only are there more features but the support is far better and customer service is polite and willing to help. I purchased the license for over grive and couldn’t find the license key so I reached out to them (him) through email and the response Christiaan
Diedericks gave me was “Be patient and check your email before wasting our time.” For Insync you don’t need a license key to remember or store for access when you need it again. Simply use your Drive login. Insync also works with Windows, Mac and Linux. Since I dual boot with Windows I use it on both OS
Wow, thanks. gdfuse is great, love it.
As always, this is another great tutorial: easy to understand and very effective. Thanks!
Just a question. Why is needed the sudo before mkdir (on local directory)?
I disregarded, and made the directory as regular user. I had no problem connecting with Google Drive. Is there something I am missing?
Well, to be honest I really do not know. I think it is simply an error on my part. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. The article will be updated shortly to reflect your suggestion.
I’m not sure if you’ll see this, but thanks for the mention, Matthew!
Gio here from Insync (www dot insynchq dot com); I found this thread while browsing through Google Drive x Linux related articles.
@Lubos, if you’re looking for an alternative to the Gnome Online Accounts feature for Google Drive, I’d be happy to send you a free Insync license
Anyone else just see Google Drive hang for a very long time before showing files? Seems to happy everytime.
