Ubuntu 17.10 Every time I remove a printer it gets added back automatically. I have 1 Canon ip8720, 1 brother mfc 8820, 2 canon ts 9020, and 1 deskjet 2549. On the computer running Ubuntu 16.04 lts NO Problem. All sorts of problems on Ubuntu 17.10. I hope this is fixed when 18.04 lts is released. Otherwise I will have to test other distros.

It happens when using local 631 in cups as well but only on 17.10

  • have a read at the fix here askubuntu.com/questions/1010312/… ... you can google on "etc/init/cups-browsed.override" and you find various posts that report success – pdc Mar 7 '18 at 7:33
  • It happens when using local 631 in cups as well but only on Ubuntu 17.10. Cups needs a preferences section. – jerry5327 Mar 9 '18 at 7:59

You can remove the printer through the cups interface http://127.0.0.1:631/printers/ by selecting the printer listed there and at the drop-down list "Administration" delete printer. You also can cancel through this interface the printing jobs if you issue any problems.
