At work I print to a network printer, then release my print at any one of the hundreds of printers dotted around campus. The make and model show up as:
Sharp MX-5141N PS, 1.0
I set my computer up to connect to the printer on the appropriate URI using the
ldp: protocol. I install the provided
ppd driver. Once I've done this I can print to the network printers for a short time.
My question is that after a short amount of time (typically < 12 hours) Ubuntu automatically updates the printer I just set up and replaces the
ldp with a local connection to the same printer shared through a colleague's MacBook. Through this indirect connect I can't (and don't want to) print.
How can I:
- Stop Ubuntu replacing my printer configuration with the shared printer it finds?
- Or, stop Ubuntu browsing for printers altogether (note:
Browsing Offis already set in
I've already checked out the responses to Stop Ubuntu discovering printers but this did not answer my question (I'm not looking to 'bump' my printer to the top of the list; I want to stop its settings being overridden).
