CUPS and HPLIP Duplicating Printer Entries, 13.1


Nothing earth-shattering but... I have an HP Photosmart USB printer that I configured with HPLIP (which seemingly "exports" into CUPS). All is well until the printer is turned off and then back on again sometime later: somebody, somewhere automagically adds the printer to CUPS so that I have two, count 'em, printers defined.
Code:
lpstat -t
scheduler is running
system default destination: Photosmart
device for Photosmart: hp:/usb/Photosmart_C4600_series?serial=CN985M155J05BQ
device for Photosmart-C4600-series: usb://HP/Photosmart%20C4600%20series?serial=CN985M155J05BQ

What the heck!

Did I miss something somewhere? Some UDEV rule, some other thing?

Fire up CUPS via your web browser, using "localhost:631" and
remove any extra printers. Just use one entry.

Thanks, but -- it doesn't work. With the printer off, I delete the second printer (the automatically added one) leaving the one I added with HPLIP (I do need to control the thing with HPLIP every so often; e.g., to do edge-to-edge printing). Turn the printer on, poof! new printer added (dammit).

OK, blow 'em both away and start from scratch. Turn the printer on, magic, printer is added to CUPS -- but, can't see it from HPLIP. Arrgghh!

Any ideas would be more than welcome.

Thanks.

Try to remove system-config-printer package. Then reconfigure your printer with CUPS.
