by IIRC printers.conf, do you mean /etc/cups/ printers.conf?
I don't understand the IIRC. Can you explain please?

As for it getting changed: this is NOT happening to me.
I've repeatedly examined it and have not found any changes.
But thanks for the suggestions: chattr +i is something I've done
at Tom Haddon's suggestion in another context when I had problems
(which still aren't completely solved) with networking, but
that's a subject for a  future thread.

More  in an independent posting.
