I have file encrypted with symmetric cipher (aes256) and not signed.

How can I decrypt it without using gpg agent ?

I get these errors:

$ gpg -d file.gpg
gpg: failed to start gpg agent
gpg: decryption failed: no secret key

as I said above, there is no secret key involved here. It is symmetric
and not signed.
