You should realise that google doesn't allow things like gmail drive in their terms of service, which means that your drive may be taken down at any time and without warning. Don't rely on it, should you get it to work. –  Stefano Palazzo Nov 8 '10 at 16:28

Why not use Ubuntu One for it? Its already integrated in OS.

This was the only thing that I could find: http://richard.jones.name/google-hacks/gmail-filesystem/gmail-filesystem-using.html

It doesn't look that user friendly unfortunately. Good luck getting it to work.

You can mount your Gmail filesystem either via fstab or on the command line using mount.

To use fstab, create an entry /etc/fstab that looks something like: /usr/local/bin/gmailfs.py /path/of/mount/point gmailfs noauto,username=gmailuser, password=gmailpass, fsname=zOlRRa Note: If you cut and paste this entry remember to remove the spaces after the commas

The username and password fields speak for themselves. The fsname is the name of this Gmail filesystem. It is important to choose a hard-to-guess name here - because if others can guess the fsname, they can corrupt your Gmail filesystem by injecting spurious messages into your Inbox.

To mount from the command line, do:

mount -t gmailfs /usr/local/bin/gmailfs.py /path/of/mount/point -o username=gmailuser, password=gmailpass, fsname=zOlRRapassword=gmailpass, fsname=zOlRRa

You could use something like dropbox, but as far as i know there is no gdrive in ubuntu.

You can use gspace Firefox add-on to use gmail as a online storage place.

You can use 'Google Doc Mount' to mount google-docs as an external drive in nautilus. There is a nice article at omgubuntu about Google Doc Mount.

Dead link. Looks like Mozilla have removed that addon. –  Stefano Palazzo May 17 '12 at 14:31

Since no one really answered your question, here it goes: it's in the works.

Google has reportedly said to Linux users to hang tight, altough this was like a month ago.

You can still use Gdrive from the browser, but the syncing app to install in Ubuntu hasn't been released yet.

Not exactly what you are looking for but, it creates a drive on your system which stores and syncs your google docs with you system. Putting other files in it might also work.

But if you only want to sync your documents then its a great application cause it would create a drive of google docs and you can put your files into it and they will be instantly synced with google docs. Its two way sync

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:doctormo/ppa

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install gdocs-mount-gtk

Yes there is. See the Grive tools, with detailed installation instructions: http://www.thefanclub.co.za/how-to/ubuntu-google-drive-client-grive-and-grive-tools

There is also the google-docs-fs package, which I've been using, but there are some limitations until the official Linux version is released. (See tutorial.) Like Gaba said, Google hasn't said anything about the Linux version yet, sadly. Also google-docs-fs is no longer being maintained.
