Using ownCloud to integrate Dropbox, Google Drive, and more in Gnome

I was looking for an easy way to have all my online storage services, such as Google Drive and Dropbox, integrated with my Linux desktop without using some nasty hack, and I finally have a solution that works. I'm here to share it with you. This is not rocket science really, all I did was a little bit of documentation reading, and a couple of clicks.
All of the technologies used are for free for personal use. Each of them has some pros and cons, and the beauty of the solution is that I can now use this as one virtual storage integrated in my desktop.
To get started with ownCloud, you can choose from a list of providers, many of which offer a free plan. You can also host ownCloud in your own infrastructure. For this example, we will be using OpenShift Online free plan, but any hosting solution will work for a single user.
Within OpenShift Online, in the main menu, click on the Add application button, and search for ownCloud if you do not see it on the list. Choose the URL of your application, and then starting the application in the cloud usually took OpenShift about 30 seconds. Then, it is time to login to your app using the generated password. For safety, make sure that you change the password during your first login. Now, you are good to go, you have 1 GB of online storage for free!
Now, it is time to do the integration on the desktop side. In Gnome, go to Settings->Online Accounts -> Add.
Choose ownCloud service and put the info in (URL, user name and password) and you have integrated ownCloud into your Linux desktop! Now, you can work with files, calendar, and notes that are automatically synchronized.
You can stop right here and enjoy the ride, or you can push it to the next level and integrate more services into ownCloud. At the moment it supports multiple platforms such as Amazon Drive, OpenStack object storage, FTP, and more.
We will take a look at integrating Google Drive and Dropbox; choose which one you want to start with. Dropbox is much easier, because it requires much less configuration! Google Drive is a little complicated, so check out the official tutorial.


Login to you Dropbox account and go to the developers application creationpage. Choose Dropbox API app and fill in the details. Fill in the Redirect URIs,which is myCloud URL.
The final stage is the configuration on the ownCloud side. First you need to enable the external storage support, because it is not supported out of the box (at least not with my version) Apps -> Apps -> External storage support ->Enable.
And then Admin -> Admin -> External storage. Enter App key and App secretand you are all set!
This is what it looks like in the file browser. The great thing about this solution is that you can easily work with the online files stored in different services from one place!
Hope you will find this useful, took me a bit of googling and clicking before it all worked for me!

Some Cool Google Drive Features You Shouldn't Miss!

Get out of your love for Microsoft Office as Google Drive features have so many things to offer you extra. Explore them with us.  

We always appreciate Google Drive for its simplicity and user friendly nature. But little do we know how much the Google Drive apps are actually power packed for further advanced use. There are quite a few impressive features in Google Drive which we usually overlook like Docs, Sheets and Slides.

Now there are some new features which are great time savers and they create documents with utmost perfection, enough to impress your boss, professors and colleagues.

Research Tools

In this world text should be very interactive and readers mostly prefer having linking to related articles in any text. So citing sources or any academic paper is always very helpful and they provide a research opportunity too. Google Docs has two tools which simplify this task.

The Research tool adds a quick citation system and if you want to use it then click Tools >> Research. The keyboard shortcuts are CTRL+SHIFT-I on Mac and CTRL-ALT-SHIFT-I on a PC. When first opened the tool appears blank but it will begin to auto-suggest the research topics based on whatever your write. The tool features 7 search options: Everything (which conducts a Google search), Images, Scholar (which filters by academic resources), Quotes, Dictionary, Personal, and Tables.

You just need to click inside the box, select the search option and start typing to search. You can select the style of citation and Docs will insert a superscript numeral. It will be added as a note to the bottom of the page. The content is therefore provided in a right format and the in-text citation process becomes smoother.

There is another option called Power Linking. It's faster then the research tool if lots of links are to be added to any document. Highlight the target text and click Control-K. The search menu suggests a link and if you find the appropriate one just click it, insert and your task is done. You can also change the text in the search box to be more specific.

Sheets for surveys

Google Sheets is fully packed to help you in your spreadsheets. You can create charts through these Sheets and that too very quickly. Select the Chart icon on the menu bar or choose Insert >> Chart. This brings in the chart editor box. In the Start tab you can then edit the range of cells and choose from a variety of layout settings. Click Insert to put the chart in your spreadsheet.

To do so, select the Chart icon on the menu bar or choose Insert > Chart. This will bring up the chart editor box. In the Start tab you can then edit the range of cells and choose from a variety of layout settings. It also suggests some recommended charts based on the type of data you have. If you don’t like any of those, select from the other options by clicking More. Click Insert to put the chart in your spreadsheet.

There is one more powerful feature in Google Sheets which enables to create a map out of location based data. The data needs to have specific locations in the cells in order. To Begin click on the Charts tab and select Map. Then choose GeoMap option. In the Customize tab you can change the colours which appear on your map. 

Slides for group-work

There is no template option like MS PowerPoint on Google Slides but it can make life easier if you are in a group project. You can also upload a PowerPoint file, convert it to a Slides presentation. To do that you just need to loacte the file, drag it into the Drive interface, select the box which converts the file. Once the Slides presentation is started you can invite others to view or edit it. You can also embed a presentation on a Google site. Select Insert >> Drive >> Presentation. If you want to insert your presentation in your personal or company website, go to File >> Publish to the web. Copy the HTML from the box 'Embed Code' and paste it into the HTML of your website. Click OK to ensure completion.


If you are collaborating on a project then Hangouts allows you to have a video chat while editing a file. Launch a video hangout, click on the Drive icon and discuss contents of the files with anybody you want. This screen sharing capability is heavily useful and it can be used on both desktops and mobiles.
