Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, SyncDrive is a Grive front end, developed by one of the Pear OS developers. SyncDrive allows the users to easily synchronize he files from the /home/SyncDrive directory (via Google Drive), displaying the the space used and the one remaining. Since there is no official Google Drive client for Linux systems, SyncDrive really does the trick. The latest version available is SyncDrive 0.9.
In this article I will show you how to install SyncDrive 0.9 on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander, Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 16 Petra, Linux Mint 15 Olivia, Linux Mint 14 Nadia, Linux Mint 13 Maya and Elementary OS 0.2 Luna.
Because it is available via PPA, installing SyncDrive 0.9 on the listed Ubuntu, Linux Mint and Elementary OS systems is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the syncdrive package. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:noobslab/pear-apps
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install syncdrive
