Overgrive - A Google Drive Client

Post by pnbalaji » 13. Aug 2017, 23:06

Hi,

Is it possible to make a slackBuild for overgrive. It is one of the best linux based google drive client.

The URL is https://www.thefanclub.co.za/overgrive.

Insync is an alternative, but it is little more expensive than overgrive.

Thanks,
Balaji.

Use google-drive-ocamlfuse. Install it with opam.

Code: Select all

sudo spi -i opam
opam install google-drive-ocamlfuse
it will get installed in an ~/.opam directory I think (so it's only for your user, not system-wide). You'll need to run it once to configure it:

Code: Select all

google-drive-ocamlfuse
and then you can mount your google drive with:

Code: Select all

google-drive-ocamlfuse mountpoint
Unmount with:

Code: Select all

fusermount -u mountpoint

I did not try this yet. Does google-drive-ocamlfuse offers two way sync? As far as I understand, it just mounts the google drive as a local mount point in the file manager.
