Before anything, this is not (as far as I could search) a duplicate.
I enabled GOA for my Google account and enabled Files, so my account showed up in Nautilus under my computer just fine. To my surprise I also have Thunar file manager and it showed up there too. Great!
Now I was wondering if I could access it using the terminal, or Terminator or whatever terminal emulator I have installed. Following some recommendations I found online, since this is a Gnome Virtual File System (GVFS) I listed the contents of my gvfs location like below:
And it showed (apparently) my files and folders but in a somewhat decoded format, like below:
ls "$XDG_RUNTIME_DIR"/gvfs/google-drive:host=gmail.com,user=username 0B2f4njx3e-blablalba 0B2f4njx3e-blablalbe 0B2f4njx3e-blablalbi 0B2f4njx3e-blablalbo
So, I thought the native gvfs tools could, maybe decode that on the fly, so I tried the below which showed a similar output:
$ gvfs-ls google-drive://email@example.com/ 0B2f4njx3e-blablalba 0B2f4njx3e-blablalbe 0B2f4njx3e-blablalbi 0B2f4njx3e-blablalbo
Well, has anyone seen that before? And could anyone make it work?
I know there is a FUSE-like driver by some enthusiast that apparently works and I will totally try it if this native one doesn’t work, but I wanted to be able to be sure there is no way to make it work with native software.
