  • Linux Lite: 5.6 64bit

  • CPU: Intel(R) Pentium(R) Gold 7505 @ 2.00GHz

  • MEMORY: 4Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: Mesa Intel(R) UHD Graphics (TGL GT2)

  • Kernel: 5.x
Followed the guidance under "File Encryption" in LL Help Manual, and made a custom right click action in file manager to make encryption/decryption of files easy.
Commands used:
Encryption:     x-terminal-emulator -t "Encrypt file..." -e "mcrypt %f"
Decryption:     x-terminal-emulator -t "Decrypt file..." -e "mcrypt -d %f"

Can someone please advice which encryption algorithm is used in above?

Probably CBC, if you did not specify one initially.  --list would show what is available.
