official Google client will drive short-term-at least I have said from the company, but meanwhile if you want to use your Google account Drive in Linux there are other alternatives: the Google Docs file system FS is not too well with this service, so in addition to using the web interface the best way to use Google Drive in Linux is to use GDrive .
client unofficial Google Drive for Linux that speak WebUpd8 has some limitations, and for example does not have full sync, but it can upload and download new or changed files , so to access these files offline.
can not “wait for changes and automatically synchronize files or delete them.” Although the support is therefore somewhat incomplete is an interesting alternative that can get you out of some trouble . The latest version of GDrive (available on the PPA WebUpd8 if you are Ubuntu users) also supports the upload of new files (and not only modified files), but the evidence seems only possible to upload a file every time.
original article explains the steps for installing GDrive in Ubuntu and to use this tool that in the absence of the expected official client can be an interesting resource.
