(solved)Sync Google Drive

PostPosted by hannahisabelle » Wed Jun 07, 2017 5:05 pm

Hey,
I'm testing out ArchLabs and in Antergos I could easily add my google account and sync calendar and more to my system I'm just wondering how do I do that within archlabs as I might switch fully to this distro

Not sure what you mean by sync calendar. Are you using an application then surely it exists here. Add your google account where?
Personally I have my mail online, calendar online and I bought insync to synchronize all my data online to my local drive.

I think the same thing is accomplished with insync without the link to the left in your file manager
Insync will put a folder with a name you like to your home folder and will sync any file/folder from gdrive to local drive
in essence that is the same
In the screenshot do you know (technically) what you have to do to get that link there?

You can't do this using Thunar. You will need to install Gnome Files, Gnome Online Accounts and sign in to Google.

I have an entry in my Obmenu which takes me straight to my Google Drive in a Browser.

I have made a tutorial just for you about insync. I think it will benefit many other users.
