No it has to be something different in the hardware support.
I was running Lubuntu and now have with mate installed with
the LXDE. It could be tied somehow to the specific hardware
configuration and the multi arch version of teamviewer 8. I
know on the other boxes that have lubuntu and ubuntu that
I've used teamviewer 8 for you have to use the 32 bit
version when you move from 12.04 LTS to 14.04 LTS. I should
have written it down but the error messages in the
teamviewer logs made it clear it was a graphics issue. It
actually would open if a desktop session was open. It would
not open on boot and it could not display the login box if
you logged off just a distorted version of the login screen.
Maybe the fix is tied to using MDM instead of lightdm with
this specific machine.
