One printer, but more than one

I have one printer, but Fedora always show up 2 or 3.

I have just removed all of them and reinstalled the printer, and this is the dialog I see now:

Have look at the properties to see what’s the difference between the two.

I can imagine that one is a connection over USB, and the other one over ethernet?

You can find more detailed information about the connected printers in CUPS webinterface: http://localhost:631

My printer has no ethernet.

It only has USB.

Then the issue is that the system is adding one printer automatically (through avahi-daemon) and you are adding one manual.

So, either disable avahi-daemon (systemctl disable avahi-daemon), or remove all printers and let avahi-daemon discover and install one printer, then don’t add a second one manually.

Thank you. I managed to have only one currently.

There happened that I had 3 at a time.

I will make sure to don’t add them manually from now on.
