When you run the program for the first time, it will ask for your username.

As a terminal command. Once you have it properly set up, you can run it as a daemon.

Just what did it do - an error message, nothing? I assume you (in terminal) changed to the directory where mprime is, then entered:
./mprime -m
then what happened?

Smile about permissions

Hi. Open a terminal, switchh to the folder where youuuu downloaded mprime, and in that place type <chmod a+x mprime>. That will make mprime executable and then yes type <./mprime -m>. Assumed you know about <top>, <kill> and basic Linux commands.
