I got a solution in Case of Linux Mint and/or Gnome Filemanager. First: If you go to Internetaccounts in your systemaptions you May sign in to Google Account. So you get Google Drive mounted in your Filesystem directly (2steps autofication in google contains a Letter and 6 Digits Like G-123456) Second: now you Are able to Go to LO "load from Server" Options and you can choose Google Drive as Server. I found Out that this way Google Drive gonna bei recondized AS an SSH Host in your Linux and LO. Third: now you can save/load Files in Google Drive.

from my perspective this doesn't work at all due to bug #tdf101630, which states that support for Google 2-Factor Authentication in LibreOffice is broken (besides that it seems a bit unclear to users that 2-Factor Authentication must be enabled in Google account first to get that 6-digit PIN on Login),

No working in LibreOffice yet.

Google Remote has not worked for some time in LO - with or without 2FA (two factor authorization). Had is working both ways some time ago but has since been broken again. Until someone volunteers to fix this, it will remain broken. Please check referenced bug report occasionally to see if any progress.

Currently, part of the problem is that a request by LO for the 6-digit pin is presented regardless if 2FA is on or off. Tested again today with it on & off. Always get LO request for pin and never a connection. In my test, Google never gets the message from LO and doesn't even send a pin - LO v6.3.0.4 on Ubuntu 18.04

??? From my answer and @Ratslinger's comment it should have been clear that any further attempt will grasp to nothing.
