Score the tube once with a triangular file. Turn the scratch away from your body placing your thumbs opposite the scratch. Push your thumbs away from you. The glass tube should break cleanly at the scratch.
Eventually, how can I cut glass at home without a glass cutter?
It is possible to cut glass using a string that has been lit on fire, and quenching the fire with a much cooler liquid (water works best). Soak the string (twine is my preference, but I have used yarn) in a liquid fuel that burns (lighter fluid is my choice, but others use acetone or alcohol).
Despite that, how do you break glass straight? With one hand firmly holding the glass on the table, with a downward movement, snap off the piece of the glass directly along the score with a downward movement. Using the Running Pliers: This is most effective when cutting shallow curves, straight cuts, and long cuts.
Scissors. It's surprisingly easy to cut glass without a glass cutter using scissors. You will also need a large tray of water in order to do it this. It will need to be big enough for the glass to be fully submerged and also for your hands and the scissors to work underwater.

The strength and fine nature of a carbide hacksaw blade cuts glass bottles.

Yes, you can use a utility knife to score glass so you can snap it along the cut and break it evenly. Use a straight edge or a ruler to guide your utility knife and score a straight line into the surface of the glass. You may need to make a few passes to cut deep enough.
Finally, there are a number of DIY cutting fluid options that you can try. It is possible to use water, vegetable oil, and even WD40. Although there are accounts of glass artists successfully using all of these DIY options, I would highly recommend against them unless you really find yourself in a bind.
