Default running mprime in Ubuntu

Hi, after downloading mprime, unzip all files in a folder, try fo find a console, usually ALT+F2 and once there, change to the directory where you unzipped all the files.Type "./mprime -m" -without the "" and follow the instructions menu. Option 1 for joining gimps, choose a name for identify yourself or let anonymous.}

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:

You should not close it with Ctrl-Z. That just suspends it but leaves it running in the background. 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.
