It's hard to answer your question, since there are multiple different
things in GPG that could fit the description of "selecting the
symmetric cryptographic algorithm".  Please explain further what you
are trying to do.  Are you trying to set the preferences on your key
so other people will send you messages encrypted with a particular
cipher?  Are you trying to set the outgoing cipher to something?
