Subject description: Can these be edited or deleted?
 

G'day,

I've just replaced my networked Epson printer with a different model, and also had to change my modem-router set-up (new modem/router).

When installing the new network printer in CUPS, I'm prompted with a drop-down list of past inputs such as network addresses in the 'Location' section (see screenshot).

Is it possible in CUPS somewhere, to delete the old, no longer relevant, entries?

Just having the current valid prompts drop-down would be nice.

Thanks,

David S.

Haha, I just ran a cups query in pFind, and got 93 hits! Shocked Your network addresses are hiding in there, somewhere!
Could you perhaps just reinstall a fresh cups?

G'day tallboy,

Thanks for the post.

My desire is to keep the correct CUPS entries (e.g. my new printer's static IP address 192.168.2.12 on the new router) and get rid of the unwanted ones (the last three in my screenshot in my first post for the old printer on the old router).

Re-installing CUPS in every Pup on this computer may be a job for sunless winter days stuck inside Rolling Eyes Wink , but here, it's 30 C-ensible degrees and just getting dark (8.15pm) Very Happy .

Anyway, enjoy the white stuff,

David S.
