I have added a Google account to Ubuntu 18.04 and enabled the 'Files' sync as per this article.

I can see all my files and use them, however I today tried to move a file from one folder to another and received the message:

There was an error copying the file into google-drive://my@emailaddress.com/1izr... (long string of characters) Operation unsupported

Is this not permitted by Google or an issue with permissions or similar in Ubuntu?

It unfortunately makes the integration pretty worthless for my situation - I move files around quite a lot.

Also I have noticed deleting files will permanently delete them with no trace on Google Drive web version - is there a way to trash these instead or is this the only option?
