Hi Tom,

This method should uninstall all LibreOffice versions at one time. I've
seen one person recommend using a purge command also to make sure all
LibreOffice elements are removed. This method really works very well. Just
paste three commands in a terminal and you have a complete new version. The
install process this way is fast. I think significantly faster than if you
were installing an upgrade in Windows. The only downside to this method is
if you wanted multiple versions installed at one time.

Hi :)
my extremely inelegant way would be to uninstall both and then just
reinstall the one you do want.  There has to be a lot of better ways to do
this though!

After posting above, I remembered that I'd actually done this sort of thing
before, but with a twist, i e, creating icons for and links to the new
version while retaining the earlier one. In the Cinnamon menu I clicked on
Main Menu and then «Add new object» and filled in the necessary information
and commands, i e, /opt/libre4.0/program/swriter for Writer. The customary
LibreOffice icons were found under, e g,
/user/share/icons/gnome/48x48/apps. I now can access LibreOffice 4.0
functions with a simple click on my Cinnamon top panel, just the way I like
it. Thanks to all who replied with suggestions !...
