How to install

Arch Linux

emerge kde-misc/kio-gdrive

KDE neon

sudo apt install kio-gdrive


KIO GDrive is available as part of openSUSE Tumbleweed and is regularly updated there. Use YaST or zypper to install kio-gdrive.

openSUSE Leap users can find it in the KDE:Extra third-party repository.

Build from source

Build on Linux

Assuming that you have all the dependencies already installed, just do:

git clone git://anongit.kde.org/kio-gdrive.git
cd kio-gdrive
mkdir build && cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`qtpaths --install-prefix` ..
sudo make install
kdeinit5 # or just re-login
You can install into a different prefix, as long as is the same prefix kdeinit5 has been installed into.

If you have problems building from source, feel free to ask for help in the #kde-fm IRC channel.
