    wolfi's build it
    http://software.opensuse.org/package/kio-gdrive

    ps. unlike wolfi's kde5 packages this one installs in /usr so you can use it even if you're not using wolfi's plasma 5

    I installed it from wolfi repos, I can see files in my gdrives in dolphin, but I cannot write into my gdrives, how can I write in my gdrives?
    and also, where my gdrives google accounts are??

    this seams to be a known bug that has apparently been fixed
    https://phabricator.kde.org/T1566
    we need to ask wolfi to update his package
    or hope that he reads this

    edit.
    the bug seams to be in a kf5 library LibKGAPI
    https://quickgit.kde.org/?p=libkgapi...55b830f3c90df4
    I think we need to wait for an update not sure how or when upstream updates get to us

    wolfi's forgotten to package org.kde.kio-gdrive.desktop
    https://phabricator.kde.org/diffusio...gdrive.desktop

    to get a launcher in the menu we need to create a new desktop file org.kde.kio-gdrive.desktop
    Code:
    kate ~/.local/share/applications/org.kde.kio-gdrive.desktop
    and paste this
    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]

    wolfi has updated his package but as I'm on leap I still don't have the updated LibKGAPI and writing to google drive does not work TW probably has the update
    the new version includes the desktop file but unfortunately it uses wolfi's kf5 paths so if you aren't using his plasma 5 that desktop file won't work. but the upcoming leap 42.2 does include this package in the kde:extra repo so it looks like this package will be officially supported

    Latest package from wolfi works on TW without addition of the Frameworks5 repo. ATM. Very nice. I now have my own cloud server ( nextcloud ), but I've been waiting for this for a long time when still a heavy Google Drive user.
    ° Appreciate my reply? Click the star and let me know why.

    FYI, it is available in KDE:Extra (from where I branch it anyway), and has been submitted to Factory and 42.2 (still pending review though).

    Currently it doesn't build though (for standard Tumbleweed), because it requires libkgapi-5.3.1 which is only available in KDE:Applications at the moment (but has been submitted to Factory and 42.2 as well).

    KDE:Extra has a repo called KDE_Applications_openSUSE_Tumbleweed too though, which does build against KDE:Applications and therefore contains kio-gdrive too already. And it's also there for 42.2.
