Linux printer discovery

Automatic print discover issues (linux gtk)

Everytime I connect to the network, Cups installs all the printers in the network automatically, some more than once.

Furthermore, I connect a USB printer to the laptop every now and then. Even though the printer is configured already, another printer is added to the list.

I wish to disable this feature and allow only manual installation of printers. How do I go about it?

How to fix the issues:

The easiest way to fix the problem is to disable the mDNS protocol in each of the network printers!
