I have a VMware virtual machine of a Linux system with two partitions.  One is BackTrack 5 on Ubuntu 10.4, and the other is Ubuntu 13.04.  When I try to get to the BackTrack desktop by entering "startx", I receive a fatal error, "Fatal server error:
no screens found."  I attached the log.  I did some research and understand that this is a problem with video drivers; however, I'm running the standard VMware SVGA II adapter.  I'm not much of a Linux user, so I'll need some help with commands.  Thanks.
