Problem installing Google Drive
« on: January 07, 2018, 10:46:15 pm »
I recently discovered I could access my Google Drive from Dolphin when I found THIS video.
I tried following the instructions using Terminal but it would not install
Code: [Select]
 sudo apt-get kacounts-providers kio-gdrive

I found that kaccounts-providers was already installed and kio-gdrive would not install.

I then thought of trying to install using synaptic and that's when I found that kio-gdrive was not in the repo, so I did a little more digging and found THIS site where I found the following commands,
Code: [Select]
sudo apt install gnome-control-center gnome-online-accounts
.
I decided to use synaptic again, but I encountered yet more problems...

unity-scope-gdrive has broken dependencies.
account-plugin-google wants to be installed and when I click to continue and install, I get;

So what was the ACTUAL terminal output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get kacounts-providers kio-gdrive

Code: [Select]
E: Invalid operation kaccounts-providers
I did a typo, there should have been two 'c's in 'accounts'
...But, shouldn't I enter
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
first, so it can pull all the needed info?

I've had a look in synaptic and I have got kaccounts-providers already installed.

Broken packages, unity-scope-drive
I select it for re-installation, it requires account-plugin-google
I start the installation process then I get the error I posted earlier 'E:Internal Error, no file name for unity-scope-gdrive:amd64'

I have just thought, why not try installation again, where this time I got;


Kubuntu 14.04LTS 64bit|KDE 4.14.13|QT 4.8.6|Linux 4.2.0-42-generic|M5A78L-M USB3|BIOS 2101|AMD PhenomII X4 965 3400+|P8H77-I Motherboard NIC|32.0GB PC3-10600 1333Mhz CL9 ( 9-9-9-24 ) DDR3

It would be **REALLY** helpful you'd stop with the screenshots of error output, I can't copy/paste text from an image.

You can't have both of these installed at the same time
account-plugin-google
kaccounts-providers

So you're going to need to decide if you want to go with the unity scope method or kio-gdrive option .. then uninstall the other.

Start with
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove account-plugin-google kaccounts-providers
but be SURE to check what else will be removed before accepting.

Then choose one or the other methods.
