Just beginning with RClone. I had a trouble configuring Google Drive:
RClone taken from the Fedora repository.
$ rclone config
Then I chose “New remote”, and was asked for name.
I tried entering <my_google_username>, and then chose “10: Google drive”.
Firefox was opened, and produced an error
‘The OAuth client was not found.’
I figured out that something might be wrong with the connection name I chose, and tried <my_google_username> @gmail.com to no avail.
After several more attempts, I chose the name to be “google”, and was authorized successfully.
I did not find anything on the connection name option in the documentation.
What am I missing?
(Edit: this might have something to do with Fedora packages I was missing; see below)
Name is just whatever you want to call the remote.
When you mount the remote or use the remote, you use the name.
but then why did I get authentication error with all my attempts besides when I chose “google”?..
(Thinking) somewhere in the process, just as a guess, I installed virtually all Fedora’s packages with names oauth in them. (Though I believed this did not help me, I might be wrong)
which additional packages do I need for this authentication to work?
(I have installed
java-oauth liboauth nodejs-oauth* nodejs-passport-oauth* python2-oauth2* python3-oauth2* signon-plugin-oauth2; it was just a guess; I do not know how authentication works…)
What’s your rclone version?
10 / Google Cloud Storage (this is not Google Drive)
\ “google cloud storage”
11 / Google Drive
I have 11 for Google Drive.
I have version 1.39 from the Fedora 27 updates repository.
Google Drive is #10 for me; (and Google Cloud strorage is #9).
That’s a couple versions back. I’d just remove that and just run the install from rclone:
curl https://rclone.org/install.sh | sudo bash
I use Fedora 27 as well and did not install anything extra to setup my GD.
Are .you using your own client_id and secret? Are you using just the autoconfig?
You can use any name you like here - whatever makes sense to you. Typically something like
gdrive is what most people use. Then you use it in the command line
rclone copy file gdrive:Folder
I would guess that you’ve entered something for
client_secret - you want to leave these blank unless you’ve made your own client id.
