This is the mega Q&A here in Ask Ubuntu for what you want to do: How do I disable automatic remote printer installation?. Indeed you’ve already completed many of the steps listed in many of the answers.

There is one answer though with another step to take. With your favourite editor and sudo powers, edit /etc/avahi/avahi-daemon.conf and insert below the [server] section this line:


then restart the avahi-daemon service:

sudo service avahi-daemon stop
sudo service avahi-deamon start

Stop/Start is preferable in some instances as documented in Unix & Linux.

What has changed

The cupsd server is no longer used. So changing the β€œBrowse” settings in the cups server won’t work.

PS Please read the entire answer linked above for more information and the comments on 5 second delay posted below it.

PPS you have the exact same printer I have, Brother DCP-7065DN :)
