    Need help integrating Google into Dolphin

    I've done a fresh install of Kubuntu 18.04 and I want to integrate Google into Dolphin. I had done this with my previous install of 16.04 but have noticed a few improvements with 18.04 and don't want to attempt at installing the Google integration the same way as I did previously as I recon there is a newer way to do it.

    I have taken a screenshot of Muon with the search results of 'google' to see what's installed.
    Is there anyone here who could help me complete installation of anything else required to be able to integrate Google into Dolphin.

    I've done a little searching and found that I can add a Google account, which I attempted to do but have come up against a brick wall... (See screenshot)

    Why is this happening
    Has anyone else managed to add a Google account to Dolphin?

    By google you mean Google Drive, correct? kio-gdrive is what you need.

    The google account integration thingy is mainly for gmail and contacts, calendars via Kmail/Kontact. This part is well known to be broken due to an oversight, and not sure why it has taken so long to remedy this. Fortunately this has nothing to do with google Drive access.


    You may have to add the Kubuntu-updates PPA to get a newer version of Kio-gdrive if the stock version for 18.04 does not work.

    Yes, kio-gdrive is installed, see my first post and check the second entry in the picture.
    canonical PPA was not ticked and I had not installed backports PPA, something which I always do but for some reason, this time I must have forgot to do...

    Just installed over 300 new packages, now just going to reboot and see what's different...

    Just done a check for updates and nothing was found.
    Just out of curiosity, could you give me a list of PPA's which are/should be included as standard as my list seems very sparse compared to what I saw on a fresh install of the previous LTS version (16.04).

    I'm still having the same problem with trying to get my Google account linked to Dolphin.

    To be honest, on the small screen I was using at the time, it was not easy on my end to read the image And no I did not bother to zoom.

    I don't see any reports on kio-gdrive not working in my searches just yet, so the latest available via either the updates ppa or the backports one should work, though it is not the current version.
    I am digging up my Bionic VM from my backups, and will look to see if it is working, but you probably will before I do

    Instead of
    I have taken a screenshot of Muon with the search results of 'google' to see what's installed.
    you could try
    Code:
    apt list --installed | grep -i google
    and post the output here between code tags. Cleaner and greener


    Sorry, that code I provided is inadequate. It only shows packages with "google" in their names. I'm posting separately what I feel is the terminal's equivalent to what Muon shows is installed.

    Well, I entered

    Did you run that as root? Why? There's absolutely no need! You'll probably ruin your system by using root when there's no need to do so.

    In any case, WARNING: apt does not have a stable CLI interface. Use with caution in scripts is perfectly fine.

    Correct, you get that warning (well, I do) whenever you run apt list.
    The fact that it says nothing else means you have no google-related packages.

    I get:
    Code:
    ~$ apt list --installed | grep -i google
    
    WARNING: apt does not have a stable CLI interface. Use with caution in scripts.
