Good morning,

I'm using VERY rarely my Google-drive. But it would be nice, if I can access it via a mounted folder in the few cases I need it. The sync-option I don't like very much. I prefer an ordinary network folder.

For that reason there exists a solution: google-drive-ocamlfuse from the psix-overlay.

That solution works nice, but it has some annoying drawbacks:

  1. ocaml has many friends. If you want to install the google-drive-package, you get 20 or 30 ocaml packages.
  2. Update ocaml-stuff is a pain. Really always I fail to update a selection of ocaml packages. Standard procedure is to deinstall all ocaml-packages and reinstall the complete bunch.
  3. In the current update I'm not able to install dev-ml/ocamlfuse. Portage tells me, it's not a git repository.


So I really, really, really would like to get rid of that unmaintainable ocaml stuff, which I only need for Google-drive now. Is there an alternative solution to mount the google-drive without any ocaml-dependencies?

It works out of the box in GNOME but I'm guessing you are not using GNOME.

I'm using e16 with mostly KDE stuff.

But nevertheless I would prefer something, which I can mount via command line. I would like to access this directory also on my NAS, which doesn't have any graphical surface.
