Starlink GAIA startup problem.

I have Starlink (the astrometry software package) installed on Ubuntu 14.04. The software currently runs with no problems, however, every time I launch GAIA from the terminal I am presented with an error message in a window, once the message is dismissed GAIA launches with no problems. If someone could help me identify the problem and/or provide a solution, that would be great!

Here is the message I receive on startup, can anybody interpret this and tell me what it means?

couldn't open "/home/angusord/.skycat/tclhttpd.default": permission denied

Thanks in advance,
