Are there any options in LibreOffice to save files directly in Google Drive by default? Other than Oog2google extension.

I am unaware of any such option. However, a simple way to accomplish the same objective is to install InSync (more info and download/installation instructions on this page) and save documents directly from LibreOffice into your new '/home/InSync' folder. When you run InSync, any files in this folder will be uploaded to your Google Drive.

Thanx.. Can we access the files even in offline? – Abhishek Aug 29 '12 at 14:26
@Abhishek: yes. – RolandiXor Aug 29 '12 at 14:50
Sure can. InSync fills the '/home/InSync' folder with local copies of all of the documents on your Google Drive, so they can be accessed and edited anytime. Running InSync will update both Google Drive and the '/home/InSync/' folder so that they both contain the newest version of every document. – mblasco Aug 29 '12 at 14:55

OpenOffice plugin ooo2g works on Libre Office too and might be what you're looking for.

To install, first of all you need to get the libreoffice java common package

sudo apt-get install

Then you can download the extension from the official site

And finally install it from libreoffice, opening

Tools -> Extension Manager -> Add

Now close and re-open libreoffice and you will se a new floating menu, which is able to export your document directly to GoogleDocs

What problem do you have? Trouble installing? – Andrea Olivato Aug 29 '12 at 15:08

You can save officelibre docs directly to Google drive. Google offers different strategies to sync documents (or document folders) between Google Docs and Google Drive.
