I recently used the Gnome-control-center and added an Online account to sync my Google Drive to my Linux.

I was wondering if there was any way I could access, using the terminal, the Google Drive "directory" that is in the screenshot provided. I'm wanting to Copy Files, and Remove Files to and from the Google Drive.

Is there anyway I can do that with the tools I already have, or will I need to download extra resources to access it from the terminal?

I'm currently running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS if that makes any difference.

    Google drive is usually mounted at /run/user/1000/gvfs/google-drive:host=gmail.com,user=YOUR-GOOGLE-USERNAME, but I'm not sure whether files can be manipulated using terminal. – pomsky Mar 13 '18 at 8:15
