Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I'm running gnome3 in raring. I have 4GB ram, but I'm experiencing high use of swap.

Looking with htop I see (among other processes):

 PID USER      PRI  NI  VIRT   RES   SHR S CPU% MEM%   TIME+  Command
1293 root       20   0 2078M 1325M   704 S  0.0 33.6  1:40.90 /usr/sbin/cups-browsed

it looks weird: cups-browsed uses 1325MB of my ram!! If I had 1GB ram the system would be swapping a lot.

Searching for cups-browsed, I see it's a deaemon that is needed (?) for managing network printers. I actually have a wireless printer.

May I safely uninstall cups-browsed? Any other hint?
