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
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
- we are looking for a freeware application (if not, there is Insync)
- non-googledrive solutions are to be accepted as an alternative
- the idea is to have at least as much free space as google drive provides,
there is already Megasync client for Linux.
50 GB for a free account and a sync app that, just like Dropbox and GoogleDrive for Windows (and unlike all google drive applications for Linux that I tried, except Insync) is able to make selective synchronization.
(That is why I cannot use free google drive apps as alternative. I have stored a lot of files on the online google drive but I do not need all of that on each device.)
For the fanatics of monochrome layouts, there is the downside of a red tray icon.
