the graphical user interface.

To encrypt and/or sign a file, call `yki` with the `-e` option (or no
option at all, as encrypt/sign is the default operation) and the
pathname to the file to encrypt and/or sign. In the dialog that will pop
up, select the settings you want, then click OK to proceed.

To decrypt and/or verify a file, call `yki` with the `-d` option and the
pathname to the file to decrypt and/or verify. The program will process
the file and display the result of the decryption/verification in a
dialog box. Click OK to actually write the decrypted or verified data to
a new file.

If the file to verify is a *detached signature*, Yorkie will assume the
corresponding signed data is contained in a file within the same
directory and with the same name minus a `.asc`, `.gpg`, or `.sig`

Integration with DES-EMA-compliant file managers
Yorkie comes with two `.desktop` files, installed under the
`$prefix/share/yorkie` directory, to enable calling Yorkie from the
context menu of file managers compliant with the DES-EMA specification
(e.g., LibFM-based file managers such as
[PCManFM]( Copy these files to your
`$XDG_DATA_HOME/file-manager/actions` directory for your file manager to
use them.
