      Description

      licheck supports QT_LICENSE_FILE to tell it where to actually check the license:
      https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/linux-building.html

      Qt Creator does not seem support that and refuses to run if the license file is not found in the usual location:

      $ export QT_LICENSE_FILE=/tmp/qt-license.txt
      $ path/to/QtCreator/bin/qtcreator
      

      Produces:

      qtaccount.license: Reading Qt Account settings from disk: "/home/user/.local/share/Qt/qtaccount.ini"
      qtaccount.license: "Qt Account settings file [/home/user/.local/share/Qt/qtaccount.ini] does not exist."
      qtaccount.license: *** License file does not exist: "/home/user/qt-license"
      Qt version is no longer known, removing from kit "Qt 5.13.2 (gcc_64) - temporary".
      

      Checking for updates does not work without the qtaccount.ini I guess, but supporting this would at least allow running it in such environments.
