Default "connect client to account"

When I created an account at mersenne.org, it said i could link my client to the account. But I can't' find a help file, can't find an option in the software, so how do I connect my client software to my account? I run mprime on linux.

This doesn't answer my question. I have run mprime for a couple of weeks, as "anonymous", now I want to connect the software to my account. Starting mprime doesn't give me the text on how to connect.

However, I put my accountname in the prime.txt file, now it's connected.

Also, it took me some trial and error to find that I can start mprime with the -m option for a menu.

Thanks.

Yes sorry, my post was meant to be a demonstrative example, on both how to bring up the menu (with -m) and how to use it. Sorry for my overly extreme brevity (and as you note, all the menus do anyways is fiddle with the text files).

Any linux user knows that any new program has to be run first with "program -h"

That's how I found the -d option initially. -m is below that so I didn't read through to that.
I'm happy now, the web site shows my cpu and the progress my computer makes. For what it's worth.
