Hello atpersian,

What you are suggesting is not a real solutions. The problem with google-drive-ocamlfuse is that under Ubuntu 16.04 it would mount automatically, provided you included the right entry for mounting it in fstab. That same entry in fstab in Ubuntu 18.04 breaks the Ubuntu 18.04 installation. The interim solution I use is mounting Google Drive manually after I start up LL4.0. Command in terminal is: google-drive-ocamlfuse ~/Google_Drive. Mind that in this example your directory under ~/$USER has to have the name  Google_Drive. Otherwise you will not be able to mount Google drive.

So i successfully installed both options.
The PPA Google-drive-ocamlfuse vs. Install Gnome-Online-Accounts..

Besides the obvious PPA vs Install options.. I found the following.
The Ocamlfuse needs to be mounted at each boot or use and unmounted.
The Online-Account option does not require additional mounting after reboot. Also has options for additional services - though I did not test.

Perhaps the online account option could be modified for use in LL settings for the 4.x series?

I use a paid app called Insync, and it works for Google Drive like Dropbox.  It's a one time price.  It is worth it to me, though I bought it a while ago for less.  Maybe 2.5 years ago.

Hello atpersian,

there is a tutorial for doing this here - https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2017/04/mount-google-drive-ocamlfuse-linux
I saw this link earlier - if you read its for Ubuntu/Gnome/Nautilus, lil different than LL which is Ubuntu/XFCE/Thunar..
If the link doesn't work another option maybe http://www.webupd8.org/2016/03/use-gnome-318-google-drive-integration.html

Read up, sounds as though some issues with large drives taking time to populate...

I may try :)


**UPDATE**
Bitsnpcs link is different that I read earlier -- https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2016/08/use-google-drive-ubuntu-16-04-linux-desktops; this is Nautilus based - hers is a PPA..


I tried the link I supplied in a 3.4 beta I got to the Google Log in but didn't sync..  *Worked in LL3.8
I'll test Bitnpcs PPA next


**Update 2**
The link bitsnpcs supplied (https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2017/04/mount-google-drive-ocamlfuse-linux) worked..
