    ubuntu start only with "startx" command

    Hi, I've just installd ubuntu 12.04 on my hp laptop with ati radeon hd 4560, but when I start it, I see only a black screen with "battery status" words. After entering in terminal, the only way to use desktop is by startx command. I can I solve the problem??

    Thanks.

    My guess would be the display manager (lightdm) has malfunction. Try something simple.

    Code:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm && sudo reboot

    Probably something in your gdm configuration file is not right, but nothing wrong with using lightdm.
