Odd ERROR directly after Download

I just downloaded PHPStorm 7.1.3 for Linux.
I am running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on a ->freshly installed new hardware<-
After un-packing, I double click on bin/phpstorm.sh ... like I did on so many times on other installations before ... but this time:

/Downloads/PhpStorm-133.982/bin$ ./phpstorm.sh

What am I doing wrong? Download -> unpack -> phpstorm.sh ?

this exception usually mean that no license information has been found  in <current user home>/.WebIde70 folder and no GUI environment  exists so that PhpStorm can't open the License dialog to let you set the  licensing options... Do you work on your Linux workstation directly, or  access it remotely?
What JDK do you run PHPStorm with? Does it include graphical libraries?
