fuse-google-drive is a fuse filesystem wrapper for Google Drive released under GPLv2

Currently in alpha stages. Do not trust this for anything important.

A detailed guide to get running on Ubuntu:


  • read() works, cache not freed until unmount, should detect file updates
  • directory listing works, no heirarchy
  • incorrect stat() info, filesize is correct, fails (as it should) on nonexistant files
  • redirecturi is now hardcoded -- you do not need the file
  • clientsecrets and client id should now be in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/fuse-google-drive/


  • #fuse-google-drive on


  • fuse
  • libcurl
  • json-c aka libjson
  • libxml2

Build Dependencies:

  • autotools
  • make

If you are on one of the systems that does not include development files with packages, then make sure you install the development packages for each of the dependencies.


$ ./
$ ./configure
$ make


Right now you need to go to and create a new app and generate a client id and client secret for an install application. The clientid value and clientsecrets value should each go into:


resepectively. You should chmod 700 $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/fuse-google-drive as well. If the folder does not exist at runtime, a helpful message is printed and the directory is created with the correct permissions if possible. Note: If $XDG_CONFIG_HOME is unset on your system, it defaults to ~/.config/.

$ mkdir mountpoint
$ ./fuse-google-drive mountpoint

You can’t perform that action at this time.
