Bug Description

On Ubuntu 15.04, I have cups configured with the "Browsing Off" option in the /etc/cups/cupsd.conf to disallow listing non local printers (I'm on a huge network where there are many printers).

This works well with non Gnome applications (LibreOffice, Adobe Reader for example). But the print dialog of Gnome GTK3 applications seems to ignore the "Browsing Off" directive and lists a lot of remote printers...

The same problem arises with Gnome GTK2 applications...

cups version: 2.0.2-1ubuntu3.2
gtk3 version: 3.14.13-0ubuntu1
gtk2 version: 2.24.27-0ubuntu1

The package cups-browsed is not installed.

Here is the content of my cupsd.conf:

#
# Configuration file for the CUPS scheduler. See "man cupsd.conf" for a
# complete description of this file.

# Log general information in error_log - change "warn" to "debug"
# for troubleshooting...

# LogLevel debug2 gets usable now
