How to mount your Google Drive on Linux with google-drive-ocamlfuse

Google has yet to release a Linux version of its Google Drive app, though there are plenty of ways to gain access to your Drive files from Linux.

If you prefer a GUI tool, you’ve got Insync. If you prefer the command line, there are tools such as Grive2 and the incredibly easy to use FUSE-based system written in Ocaml. I’ll show how to use the latter to mount your Google Drive account on your Linux desktop. Although it’s done via the command line, you’ll be surprised at how easy it is to pull off. It’s so easy, anyone can do it.
