I've created a encfs mount on my home and I am starting it automatically with gnome-encfs, however there is no icon on the unity dock, but instead there is a icon on the desktop.

I would rather have it on the dock since it seems more natural as it happens with USB sticks, CD roms, DVDs, etc...

Is it possible? How?

I have no idea for the launcher but I use the Ubuntu AppIndicator CryptFolder-Indicator.
