KIO GDrive is a KIO slave that enables KIO-aware applications (such as Dolphin, Kate or Gwenview) to access and edit Google Drive files on the cloud.

How to install


pacman -S kio-gdrive


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.


KIO GDrive is available in the [email protected] development svn repository: http://area51.pcbsd.org/branches/plasma5 in net/kio-gdrive


Just open your application menu and look for "Google Drive". You should find a Desktop file that will open Dolphin with the gdrive:// URL already set.

You can do the same from the command line as well:

kioclient5 exec gdrive:/

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
sudo make install
kdeinit5 # or just re-login
On some distro (e.g. Archlinux) installing in a different prefix (such as /usr/local) might not work.

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



First stable release


Fixed a bug that caused the login dialog to show up again after authentication (bugs 367988, 369581).


Fixed copy-pasting from gdrive:// URLs to local disk (bug 369619).


Stop trashing all account files on account removal.


  • Fixed an issue that would make some files hidden (bug 371954)
  • Added TryExec key in the .desktop file.
