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 (F26) machines.

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.
