Unable to sync xxxx.gdocx.cloud. Google error


I get error messages from Google Docs in the CLI on ubuntu.

Unable to sync Document.gdocx.cloud. Google error.

Is this a limitation, or how can I deal with it?
So far I have been using Insync and there I was able to use the G-Docs files as links to open the document in the browser. Now I only have the placeholder.

Kind regards

Hi @yves,
Can you reproduce this issue again and then send a diagnostic using the diagnostics command from the CLI? That will allow me to take a closer look at this error.

Hello Tony

btw: should i pack the agent in a systemd service, or how do i get an automatic start in ubuntu?

Hi @yves,
These new versions will correct the download error: https://www.odrive.com/s/d6ff392b-4d48-45d9-ab4f-08c17b23b49a-602bf147

We don’t yet have a way to make them behave like url shortcuts to open the browser. We need to take a look at how we can do this.

We could potentially write the url shortcut information to the file, but it would require registering the gdocx, gsheetx, etc. to be opened/read by the browser, in some way.

Hi @Tony

I took a quick look what insync does with it. That is exactly the way that you also describe.

{"url": "https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/###fileID###/edit?usp=drivesdk", "account_email": "###userAccount###@gmail.com", "file_id": "###fileID###"}

It seems that insync has implemented a helper component for this. The GDocs files are opened with “Insync-Helper”
