    Default KDE Print Dialogue shows remote printer twice.

    Don't know if this is a bug per se, or an error in the way I have printing set up.

    I have a host PC (TW 0810 CUPS 2.2.3) to which is connected an elderly(!) HP DeskJet 710c via the parallel port.

    On this PC the (yast) Printer settings are:

    Share Printers
    Allow Remote Access
    For computers within the local network
    Publish printers within the local network

    On a second PC (Leap 42.3 CUPS 1.7.5) the Printer settings are:

    Print via Network
    Accept Printer Announcements from CUPS Servers
    accept all announcements from anywhere

    This works OK with the exception that in KDE print dialogues, the printer appears twice.

    http://paste.opensuse.org/view/raw/808642ee

    I'm guessing this may(?) be due to "Add-remote-print-queue-support.patch" applied to "libqt5-qtbase" ( https://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-.../msg00391.html ), but may be, and probably am, completely wrong

    If on the client PC I disable "Accept Printer Announcements from CUPS Servers", the the KDE print dialogue only shows one entry for the printer, but... the printer then isn't accessible from non-KDE applications, Libre Office, for example.

    Yes... "Add-remote-print-queue-support.patch"

    If I prevent KDE/Qt from doing it's own printer discovery, (by setting the environment variable "QT_DISABLE_PRINTER_DISCOVERY=1") then the remote printer only appears once.
