I am unable to connect Google Drive to LibreOffice.

Error Message: "The specified device is invalid"

My Environment: LibreOffice Version: 6.1.2.1, Build ID: 6.1.2.1-3.fc29, Fedora 29 Workstation 64-bit, Gnome Desktop 3.30.2, Google G Suite, 2-Step Authentication

Actions Taken: Open LibreOffice Calc. Select "File>Open Remote...". Choose Google Drive from the "Add service" drop down menu. Enter user and password. Prompted for 6-digit code. Enter 6-digit code from Google Authenticator. Receive error message "The specified device is invalid".

Additional Information: I have tried to enter the 6-digit authentication code provided by the Google Authenticator for 2-Step authentication and I have tried to use a Google App-Specific code, but both produce the same error message in LibreOffice.

I too need some help! I am unable to configure LibreOffice to get and save to GoogleDrive. It keeps on referring to the "Google Drive asks for authentication 6-digit pin" but no pin is sent/received. I have tried with and without Google's 2-Step Verification, but no luck. I see a number of online forums highlight this. Is there any possibility this will be able to be configured and work? I rely heavily on saving and editing documents on GoogleDrive locations and using LibreOffice. GoogleDoc has a few limitations for me. Any guidelines will help.

hey... I'm from India and I would like to share with you about the WhatsApp Starts Deleting Google Drive so WhatsApp had cautioned that beginning November 12, any reinforcements that hadn't been refreshed in over a year will be consequently expelled from Google Drive stockpiling. Android clients can refresh their duplicate and arrange its refresh recurrence as long as they have an individual record on Google .
