Teamviewer on Lubuntu on T41

I'm running Lubuntu 16.04.4 LTS on a Lenovo T41 laptop with 2GB RAM.  I installed Teamviewer 13 with no errors.  I rebooted.  I then ran teamviewer to connect to a Xubuntu laptop in my living room, running teamviewer 13.  My T41 screen turned black and after about 15 seconds, teamviewer crashed.  This happens every time.  I then ran "apt-get purge teamviewer", rebooted, and installed Teamviewer 12 with no errors.  Whenever I try to connect to the laptop in my living room, a dialog says "Your partner uses a newer version of TeamViewer.  Would you like to update TeamViewer now to establish a connection?".  There's only one choice: [OK].  If I click [OK], nothing happens.  There seems to be no way to connect to the laptop in my living room.  Any solutions?

Re: Teamviewer on Lubuntu on T41

I just noticed at the bottom of the window "Incompatible TeamViewer versions".  So it seems I can't run 13 and I can't run 12 on this T41.  Maybe the only solution is to downgrade the living room Xubuntu laptop to 12?
