Installing Google Drive on Linux

Google Drive is really useful I use it for the central location of this blog infact!

Installation guide

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:alessandro-strada/ppa
sudo apt update
sudo apt install google-drive-ocamlfuse

You need to ensure the directory you want to use exists, you can then mount google drive to any folder.

google-drive-ocamlfuse ~/Google_Drive

Automounting the Google Drive


mount | grep "${HOME}/Google_Drive" >/dev/null || /usr/bin/google-drive-ocamlfuse "${HOME}/Google_Drive" to ~/.profile

Restart your file explorer and there will be a mounted device Google_Drive
