We have a number of .cls files on a central server, the corresponding directory is set in $TEXINPUTS (on Linux) and pdflatex works just fine.

Now I would like to switch to a graphical environment such als LaTeXila or texmaker, which both do not find the cls files as they seem not to use $TEXINPUTS. I could now follow the general advice to place the cls files into ~/texmf/tex/latex/..., but that would just mean to duplicate and sync them frequently.

Is there any way around that?

    the tex used by your frontend will use TEXINPUTS but you just need to make sure that it is set in the shell that launches the application. It depends on the details of your setup. – David Carlisle Jan 21 '18 at 15:48
  • You are right, of course ... I moved $TEXINPUTS from ~/.bashrc to ~/.profile and it works just fine! Thank you! – LeRookie Jan 21 '18 at 16:35
