The StarTeam CPC on Linux uses the $JAVA_HOME environment variable to locate the JRE needed to launch. If this variable is not declared the client may fail to start.
It is necessary to declare the JAVA_HOME variable before each launch of StarTeam. As environment variables in Linux are volatile, and need to be re-declared for each shell session this can prove inconvenient. To resolve:
1. Create a file in the user's home directory (i.e. /home/user) named .profile 2. Add the following text to the file, adjust the java path as appropriate
3. Mark the file as executable:
chmod x /home/user/.profile
The JAVA_HOME variable will now be automatically declared upon each launch of a new shell window, removing the need to declare it manually prior to launching StarTeam.
