Re: Legacy printers listed in a fresh Ubuntu install on Windows machine.

Curiouser and curiouser.  Although I can delete printers from the Printers list, when I Add Printer and it searches for what's around it still comes up with a list of previously installed printers despite them not being switched on.  So there is another file somewhere that has the info. 

Anyway, this was too painful so I used a GParted Live USB (and a donation) to remove the main partitions from both the SSD,  and also the HDD that had remnants of Windows on it (so looked like a dual boot), then did a fresh install which is lightening fast with an SSD. 

So problem solved - sort of - but I would really like to know what's going on. 

Many thanks for your assistance, Mark.
