I have been following Cryptomator for some time, but when I last considered using it to encrypt my Google Drive, which I sync to my Ubuntu 18.04 PC and laptop using Insync, there was no option to auto-mount. There has been a major update to Insync 3, which requires a fresh install, so as part of that I am going to wipe google drive and resync everything from local storage - this would be a perfect time to start using Cryptomator, but perhaps someone could answer the following questions first please:
Should I see a system tray icon when Cryptomator is open and minimised? Because I do not. My desktop environment is Gnome 3.28.2. When I minimise I can maximise again by selecting Cryptomator from my dock, but not the system tray. It would be nice and neater to have cryptomator instead minimising to the system tray.
Once Cryptomator is configured, I would like to not have to interact with it. Can it be setup on linux so that it automatically starts at boot, unlocks vaults if necessary, and is minimised?
Do I really need to lock my vaults? Is it the case that encryption only occurs (and is therefore backed up by Insync in my case) AFTER I click lock vault OR is my data being encrypted truly on-the-fly whenever changes are made, so I never need to worry about locking the vault? My local drives are encrypted already with LUKS and Veracrypt, so I just require Cryptomator for cloud security.
