gmailfs: how to use it?

Postby xaber1488 on Sat Jul 04, 2009 9:41 am

Hi there!
I installed gmailfs by apt-get install gmailfs, but when i mount the fs by mount.gmailfs none /home/xaber/gmfs -o username=gmailuser@gmail.com,fsname=zOlRRa -p, it is mounted correctly,but I can't use it! For example, if, in my home dir, I type "ls", it says to me that the device gmfs is full... The same if I open gmfs and try to create a dir: it says that the device is full (obviously, my gmail box is not full)! Instead, if I try to open it with nautilus, I get the message that no application is installed to manage that object!
How can I use gmailfs?

Thanks in advance!

You (user) are included in the fuse group
--does it work under root access (# prompt)
permissions on /mnt/gmail, or wherever you created the mountpoint

I get the same result under root... How to see if I am included in the fuse group?

You can run mint menu>control center>system>Users & Groups..Manage Groups TAB>Properties
--see if you are in the fuse group, or select your user and look through its settings to see which groups your are in..
[x] if it is not ticked when you see your name, you are not in that group
--compare it with the console command groups, which will give you a direct indicator of groups yo are allocated/assigned to..

I prefer this method, it is quicker and a more definitive indicator..
mint menu>Terminal
--when the terminal (console screen opens)
groups

Well, I used groups and I'm not in the fuse group... But I can't add me to the fuse group by using the graphical menu manage groups, cause when I click on manage groups, all the groups are grey and I can't modify them... Is there someway to add me to the fuse group from the console?

Well then, I added me to the fuse group by using the usermod command: now "groups" displays me in the fuse group. But when I mounted the fs, the result was the same: device is full! And now, while I am able to access the fs (but I can't manipulate files), root can't access the fs.

Btw, this is the gmailfs log file:

What is your result if you followed these steps ??

Mint menu>control center>system>users & groups>Unlock button,
  • reply with your user password,
    --you should be in the admin group to do so
  • manage groups>Fuse
  • check that root and yourself (you logged in username) are ticked [x] to be included in the fuse group..
As a test, run min menu>Software Manager or Package Manager, are you given a dialog screen that asks for a password ??
--if you are that is the admin function password being required to perform that task, same as with the above control center operations

Or in the Terminal
mint menu>Terminal, is located in favorites
sudo su
--are you asked for your password ??

If the above works, you get password prompts; then back to gmfs install & configurations
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions ... ht=GMailFS
Section 3.1 & 3.2, for configuration
3.1 configure access
3.2 mount point
