Mount Google Documents in Ubuntu

There are several workaround done to have Googledocs in your native directory.

Methood 1:
Add the following PPA in your Ubuntu, I am using 11.04, the deb developed on Lucid, but it worked.
Change the source.list so that it'll use Lucid instead of Natty

root@vostro:/etc/apt/sources.list.d# cat doctormo-ppa-natty.list
deb lucid main
deb-src lucid main

Later, sudo apt-get update && apt-get install gdocs-mount-gtk

Check the installed package;

# dpkg -l |grep gdoc
ii  gdocs-mount-gtk 1.2-0ubuntu2 Mount a Google Docs Directory

Type gdocs-mount-gtk through console or select from drop down menu and it should works!

Method 2:
Use "gmount"

sudo gmount /targetdir

It should work too!


Compile from several resources online.
