IIRC I read somewhere that line 704 had something to do with your graphics driver, might be wrong though. In any case, which graphics card do you have, and what driver do you use?

I have the same card (well, chipset, the ati card and 1GB variant), and had a similar problem until I installed the 13.3 Beta driver from AMD. (Though now there's the 13.4 that works too)

If you want to know, here is how to install (You will have to use the terminal, so If you don't feel comfortable doing that, do not do this).

Do you know whether VTX cards just use the normal drivers, or if they have special drivers? In case of special drivers just use those instead of amd, should still work.

Warning : Use at your own risk.

1) first, you'll want to remove your current fglrx-driver :

sudo apt-get remove --purge fglrx (in case you are using fglrx-updates, replace fglrx with fglrx-updates)

2) restart your system

3) download the latest beta driver (http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/linux/Pages/radeon_linux.aspx)

4) Extract to /home/user/Downloads (replace user with your user name)

5) (in terminal) cd /home/user/Downloads

6) sudo sh your-driver (you can go to properties at your driver and copy the name)

7) install the standard

8) restart

EDIT : Had some stuff about problems with Ubuntu unity, but saw from your error report that you use mint, so those shouldn't occur.
