After I run the command of "./mprime -m",then I close it with the command of Ctrl-X or Ctrl-Z.But when I open it again it says:
Code:

You should always exit the mprime menu by typing 5. Once you have configured via the menu and exited, you should run it again with ./mprime -d to get it to actually do some work. Also, search this forum for a script that will let you run it automatically in linux.

If you suspended it with ctrl-z you should resume it with the fg command.
I don't know what ctrl-x does for you.

Best would be to exit it properly in the first place with the 5 option of course.
