Finally: Mount your Google Docs

Was reading one of my favorite productivity blogs, Lifehacker, and they so awesomely published this nice tip from on how to mount your Google Docs to your computer.

Now, for most of you, when I say “mount” you are thinking, “Wait, mount? I don’t ‘mount’ drives on my Windows machine… that’s Linux, right?” Yes, that’s right… but if you are a Windows User, you aren’t out of luck. Click here for your goods.

This is for Ubuntu 10.04 only, so if you are on any other distro, you are out of luck for the time being. You first need to add the PPA by doing the following:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:doctormo/ppa

Then simply run aptitude to install the gdocs-mount-gtk package.

sudo apt-get install gdocs-mount-gtk

After installation, just open the program by going to Applications > Accessories > Google Docs Connection. From that point, you log in and you can now drag and drop!

Nice app, thanks DoctorMo.
