Disable or uninstall it. If you do 'apt show cups-browsed' you can see
why that would probably help.
Try 'sudo systemctl stop cups-browsed.service' first. If that stops the
extra printer queue from showing up, then you can stop it from starting
up again at the next boot with 'sudo systemctl disable
1. Set 'CreateIPPPrinterQueues' to 'No' in /etc/cups/cups-browsed.conf
2. Set 'BrowseRemoteProtocols' to 'none' or 'cups' in the same file
3. Set 'BrowseAllow' to a range that excludes the printer, also in the
I think either of these would solve the issue.
"Are you sure?"
