Given the response I got from the list I decided to go at 
solving my teamviewer 8 / graphics problems in different 
way. I looked for suggestions on dstros that worked well 
with old hardware and installed Mate with a LXDE desktop. 
Not only does it work, it also allows you to use the x64 
version of teamviewer 8. This computer has been a pain to 
set up but I have learned a lot of options to try when 
things don't work. I appreciate all the help.
                    Thanks
                     Linda
