I've freshly installed Fedora 27 on two machines; neither have a
printer directly connected, but rely on cups-browsed to display
the LAN's printers that are attached to, and managed by other
Not any more. cups-browsed seems to have lost its ability to
detect automatically those network printers. Is anyone else
seeing this? Or have I screwed up, somehow?
I installed dnf-plugin-versionlock and then did:
# dnf --releasever=26 downgrade cups
# dnf versionlock cups-2.2.2
So far so good so I think I'll stick with this until all my machines
are upgraded at least.
Richard: Did that actually work for you? Ie, does cups-browsed now
show your LAN printers? Because it didn't for me.
The downgrading step did downgrade five cups packages, but not
cups-filters, which is the source of /usr/sbin/cups-browsed. When I
tried to downgrade it also, dnf wanted to downgrade 381 packages
including the libreoffice collection, x2go-server, vim and a slew of
perl items. That seemed too extreme.
So cups-browsed remains broken for me.
Time to visit bugzilla, I think.
