Stop Ubuntu printer added messages

If Ubuntu gives popup messages about auto-adding “new” printers upon connecting to a wired or WiFi network, try the configuration below.

Stop auto-add printer on network connect by editing /etc/cups/cups-browsed.conf:

BrowseRemoteProtocols none

Then restart CUPS from Terminal:

service cups restart

Test: reboot PC with network disconnected, check that the offending printers are not in Settings → Printers, and then connect to the network and verify that the printers don’t auto-add again.
