KIO GDrive

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

Distro XXX

Distro YYY

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


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

git clone 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.
