printing – Printer Idle – No suitable destination host found by cups-browsed

Printer Idle – No suitable destination host found by cups-browsed. Ubuntu 20.04. “No suitable Destination Host found by cups-browsed” answer recommends sudo apt-get purge --autoremove cups-browsed . When I do that, I get:

The following packages will be REMOVED:
  cups-browsed* libfprint-2-tod1* libquazip5-1* ubuntu-mate-core*
  ubuntu-mate-desktop*

I definitely need MATE and the removal of cups-browsed seems to force the removal of MATE. Is there another workaround? May I remove cups-browsed and nothing else? The printer was working on the initial installation of 20.04, but one or more of the security upgrades seem to have caused a software failure. The printer is a Brother DCP-L2540DW series, driverless, cups-filters 1.27.4
