A daemon to watch and sync your
~/Google Drive folder on Linux by calling grive.
This project is dependent on you having already installed grive. On an Ubuntu system (where this is supported), you should probably install it from the Ubuntu Software Center.
Tested to work on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.
Build and Install
Go into your cloned
grive-daemon directory and run
make to build. To rebuild later, just run
make clean followed by another
After building, run
sudo make install to install the daemon to your
/usr/local/bin/ directory. This will also install an autostart script in
/etc/profile.d/ so grive-daemon will start automatically after you log in.
How to Run
After setting up grive (you need to create
~/Google Drive yourself) and following the instructions in the preceding section, if you want to run grive-daemon immediately, just open a terminal and run:
It should automatically sync local changes to your Google Drive folder for you.
sudo make install, grive-daemon should also start itself automatically shortly after each time you log in.
If you want to remove grive-daemon later, just go into the cloned
grive-daemon directory in a terminal and run
sudo make uninstall.
This daemon is a rushed hack job, and you're nuts if you're expecting a polished product. I never made anything similar to this before. YOU'VE BEEN WARNED!
