Insync, The Unofficial Google Drive Client is Available for Cross-Debian Distro

Insync, an unofficial Google Drive client for Linux, is now available in a repository for Ubuntu, Linux Mint and Debian users and it’s recommended you add since you’ll get automatic updates.

The Insync repository is available for:
– Ubuntu: natty, oneiric, precise and quantal
– Debian: squeeze and lenny
– Linux Mint: lisa and maya

If you’re using one of the above Ubuntu, Debian or Linux Mint versions, add the repository using the following command:

– for Ubuntu:

echo "deb $(lsb_release -cs) non-free" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/insync.list

– for Debian:

echo "deb $(lsb_release -cs) non-free" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list

– for Linux Mint

echo "deb $(lsb_release -cs) non-free" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/insync.list

Then, for any of the above, import the key and update the software sources:

wget -O -[email protected] | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update

And finally, install Insync if you haven’t already:

Unity (appindicator):

sudo apt-get install insync-beta-ubuntu

GNOME Shell:

sudo apt-get install insync-beta-gnome


sudo apt-get install insync-beta-cinnamon


sudo apt-get install insync-beta-kde
