Using Google Drive on Linux isn't impossible. Thanks to alternative clients like Grive, we can synchronize the files stored on Google Drive's storage space with our PC.

Useful open source Google Drive client for Linux.

Steps to be able to use Grive

Once you've completed the installation of Grive on your computer, you can access certain basic functions from the command line. Type in grive -h to view a list of options available.

The first time you use Grive you have to authorize the application to access your Google Drive account. To do so, write grive -a on the terminal prompt. Then you'll have to copy and paste into your browser what is shown on your screen.

Accept the permissions that appear in your browser window and you'll obtain an authentication code that you have to paste onto the console. Once the process is over, a grive directory will be created in the home, to where the files stored in Google Drive's online space will be copied.

By downloading Grive you'll be able to synchronize files with your Google Drive account on Linux.
