Make sure your license file is correct.

I don't understand your first line (after hi). What's the difference between "start matlab" and "run matlab"?

Can you start matlab with a GUI using X Windows (just running matlab without arguments)?
Can you run it in command line but without -nojvm: matlab -nosplash -nodesktop

It's very unlikely that you have license error one way, but not another. Are you sure you use the same MATLAB version? The most possible reason is your license file is for another MATLAB version. Remember that license is version specific.
