After installation of version 5.03, I found that the 'AltSearch" extension
that I had installed for version 4.x is apparently incompatible with the
newer version, but I have not yet located any instructions for removing such
an extension. Now, each time I save a document while exiting from Writer, I
get an error message that files are damaged and will be reconstructed next
time I open them.

No damage is evident, and no files are listed in the message. I renamed my
user profile as per the on-line instructions, and the message went away, so
I presume it's connected somehow to the presence of the incompatible
extension. However I have customized my system to such an extent that I need
to return to the original user profile to be able to work comfortably.

Is there a process for removing such material, or must I bite the bullet,
blow away my entire installation (which is on Xubuntu 14.04.3) and install
version 5 anew from the PPA?
