manage user encrypted volumes
sirikali provides a graphical user interface for managing encrypted volumes for a user.
The actual mounting/encryption process is managed by another service. The supported services are CryFS, EncFS, GocryptFS, and SecureFS. At least one of these services must be installed.
Encrypted volumes are created using the "Create Volume" menu. The encrypted data is stored at the "Volume Path". For normal password protection, use the "Key" option.
To unmount a volume, click on the volume path and select 'Unmount'.
To mount an existing volume, select "Mount Volume", select the directory containing the encrypted data, and enter the key information.

Path to where a volume to be auto unlocked/mounted is located.
- -m tool

Start the application without showing the GUI.
- -b backend
A name of a backend to retrieve a password from when a volume is open from CLI. Supported backends are: "internal","stdin","keyfile","kwallet" and "libsecret". The first three are always present but the rest are compile time dependencies.

"stdin" option causes SiriKali to read the password from standard input.
"keyfile" option causes SiriKali to read the password from a file.
"libsecret" option causes SiriKali to read password from lxqt-wallet libsecret backend.
"kwallet" option causes SiriKali to read password from lxqt-wallet kwallet backend.
