Default Running mprime in verbose mode under linux?

i've run prime95 for several years on my windows pcs, but have just loaded mprime on a recently build linux machine. i can see that the mprime process is running, but how do i see the screen that logs progress (i.e. 97.2% complete, 97.3% complete, etc.).

many thanks in advance

You have to start mprime with the -d option, otherwise it remains silent. I always start my mprime with -d and -m (which causes it to start at the menu) options.

My mprime always starts with a runscript «
start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --exec /home/victor/mprime/mprime -- -B
»

Is it also possible to see the progress of mprime's work?

just edit your startscript so that mprime runs verbose and direct the output into a textfile, this way

cd /home/victor/mprime
./mprime -d >> mprime.log

then it always appends the output to mprime.log
