When I list directory components of /run/user/1000/gvfs/google-drive:host=gmail.com,user=address using ls, it shows

The file names are unintelligible, but I can copy these files.

Sorry for bad English!


Try Open Drive client snap package (odrive-unofficial) on Ubuntu Software. It makes this easy because it's a GUI app. To install it from the terminal in all currently supported versions of Ubuntu type:

sudo snap install odrive-unofficial
  • Exactly the opposite. I want to be command line. It's easy to copy the file to the inside drive and download file . – TiTAN Jan 20 at 13:39
