I have not used either of those but use Insync. It is a paid app however.

Anybody ever use OverGrive? They say it's compatible with Ubuntu, Debian, Mint, Raspbian, Elementary, CentOS, Fedora, openSUSE, Arch and Manjaro.

I use grive, but just for uploading from a sync folder. It works quite well for that. Make sure to use the version from our repo.

Stevo - it looks like our repo is the problem. It points to grive which was discontinued and no longer works. Grive2 is the updated version but it looks like it is not in our repo . . .

The "grive" in our repo is grive 2; it's just that it has the same package name as the older version. I packaged it and use it every day, so I'm certain about that.
