Desktop integration with Linux AppImage

I’m trying to use the 1.4.0 AppImage for Linux on Ubuntu 16.04. My understanding is that I just need to make it executable and run it. When I do so, Cryptomator opens, but it doesn’t mount a drive when I unlock a vault, and there’s no integration with the desktop or launcher. I installed 1.3.2 using dpkg and this is all set up automatically. What’s the best way to get the same behaviour with the AppImage? Are people setting things up manually or using an external tool like AppImageLauncher? I’d prefer not to install additional software if possible. Thank you for your help.
