Google Drive for Ubuntu with Grive

Grive on Dash

Update 2013-10-01: I’ve discovered a better solution in my opinion. But it does require a small fee for a lifetime service.  If you’re an incorrigible cheap skate, then go with Grive.

There is currently no Google Drive client for Ubuntu, which sucks because it’s an excellent tool for backing up your work and files instantly. I use it with Windows and it’s extremely reliable. So when I popped over to my Ubuntu installation for development work, I was disappointed with the lack of a native client.

Luckily a bunch of other people feel the same and they developed Grive – the open source Google Drive client!

Here’s a good post on how to install it in your system:

And if you’re using Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit (unfortunately there’s no 32-bit support just yet.):
