My HP printer has 4 entries under Printers, and I created only one of them. That's the one I want. The multiple entries has to do with USB connected, and network connected, and they get recreated as fast as I can delete them. How to stop this behavior?


How about apt purge cups-browsed? All gone?

  • But what will stop them from coming back? – shmu Oct 2 '20 at 4:50
  • Keeping cups-browsed uninstalled. – brian_p Oct 2 '20 at 9:10
  • Thanks, I will have to try it out. Will I still be able to add a printer manually? – shmu Oct 2 '20 at 13:03
  • Indeed you will. – brian_p Oct 2 '20 at 17:27
