GRive is an unofficial Google Drive sync client for Linux (Precise). Google has stated that they are working on the official sync client, but it has yet to appear in the wild. If you would like to start syncing your docs right away, add the following NW Linux software source to your /etc/apt/sources.list.
deb http://gdrive.nwlinux.us precise main
Once the NW Linux software repository is added, update your system and install GRive.
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install grive
Once installed, create a folder where you want your Google Drive data synced and execute grive -a in Terminal. Follow the instructions and provide access to your Google Accounts to GRive.
Grive does not automatically sync. In order to execute the sync process, execute grive in Terminal. As an alternative, you could configure a cron job to execute the command at a certain interval.
