Connecting to Google Drive as a CMIS provider (edit using a proper word processor, save to Google Docs) is something LibreOffice can supposedly do.
I've been trying for a while on Ubuntu, using (a) the Ubuntu distro 4.2, (b) a hand-compiled 4.4beta (with --enable-ext-google-docs) (c) Windows LO 4.2 under Wine and (d) the Windows 4.4beta under Wine, and I can't get it to work.
Assume I've read the HOWTOs. Has anyone here actually got this to work themselves? Not a link to a HOWTO, not reports someone else did, but you personally. How did you get it to work? Which version and platform?
(There's also a feature request to give this a decent interface. This would be a FANTASTIC feature to have working out of the box.)
Others have hit bug 72646. No successful reports as yet.
Update: One report of success on Windows, though not on Linux (though hellsop couldn't get it to work on Windows).
Update: HOLY CRAP I GOT IT TO WORK. Windows 7, LO 4.3 and 4.4beta. Tools->Options->General, set native dialogues. Open. Click "Servers ..." or just "..." at the top. Enter a name, set CMIS, set Google Drive, click the twisty arrow, enter username (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org) and password, enter a master password, enter username again, click "OK". You should now have Google as a drive you can go to. You need to hit ctrl-S to save files, they don't autosave, but that's fiiiine.
LO 4.4beta for Windows under Wine 1.7 still doesn't work. I click the twisty arrow and it hangs. I'm presuming some obscure networky thing isn't implemented in Wine.
(Also on my Facebook, if you can see that.)
