@nullptr_t i think you have forgotten to fix the path in "grive-indicator-autostart.desktop" and "grive-setup".

Hello everyone
I made it!

It worked two times at KDE environment; I created manually the "Google Drive" Folder and enter with the Terminal, i wrote "grive -a" inside the "Google Drive" folder and did the manual authentication (copy the key and paste it on the terminal)... then i wait to complete the full sync...
I closed the terminal once ended and opened the "Google Drive Indicator"; I had to manually set it to launch at startup... i find problems with the KDEWallet, so i turned it off in the wallet configuration (global disable) because if the "Indicator" cant connect immidiatly it get bug telling is offline until you close and open it again.

I hope this help someone to save the head and a few dollars in licenses ;)

PS: using currently version available (1.15-5)

No visible icon and no automatic sync here! Last version.

I don't have got dialog prompt asking me for google auth token. Just it says it is syncing but nothing happens.

solved-with KDE Frameworks 5.24 the icon is now visible again

Am I the only one, who uses KDE Plasma5 with grive-tools?

Since the Update of Qt to 5.7 I have no visible Icon anymore in my control bar.

There is clickable space for the icon and synchronization works fine; but the icon is not visible anymore.

Grive-indicator creates a lock file /tmp/grive-indicator.lock and refuses to start if it is already present. So only one user can have it running at a time. It would be better if the lockfile was placed in a place like /run/user/$UID/, which I guess is the standard place for it.

That line already exists before everything gets moved out of the directory...

I found some minro problem during installation...
grive-tools.install should be updated, this line should be moved to PKGBUILD:
chmod 755 /opt/grive-tools/grive-indicator

Also the path above is wrong.

The update removes all unnessecary thefanclub directories.
