    Try the command:
    fixvesa

    before you type "startx".

    You may want to try searching harder next time for your error as it's literally all over this forum.

    Here's the link for getting ati radeon cards to work (NON FGLRX!) with a sample xorg.conf.

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonDriver

    If doing an lspci -nn|grep vga doesn't show something similar to this (Note: This is for my 9250 card which runs at 1440x900, your's will look different but should at the LEAST show ATI):

    01:0c.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: ATI Technologies Inc RV280 [Radeon 9200 PRO] [1002:5960] (rev 01)

    Then you're going to have to try messing with the FGLRX proprietary driver, or search google for your specific card and issues to get it working in Ubuntu
    I may have been born with a silver spoon in my mouth but it does not mean I like to be spoon fed.

    finally here is the solution with a command:
    #fix-vesa
    # startx

    and bt4 ok
