Retention of packages, i never installed a printer ...

During installation i did not add any packages for a printer system since I haven’t a printer.

While updating the system today ... there is a retention of these packages:

python3-cupshelpers system-config-printer system-config-printer-common
system-config-printer-udev

Then I checked in the synaptic and I found too many packages related to the printer system.

How can I remove all the printer packages of the system from the command line?.

Thank you.

Any reason you didn't just uninstall them while you were in Synaptic?

Did you ever figure this out?  Synaptic is pretty handy when trying to figure out what you do and don't need.

The system-config-printer stuff can definitely go, that's just a helper gui for configging printers. Once you uninstall that there will likely be other packages that pop up as "autoremoveable", you can uninstall those too. A search on "cups" will list everything cups-related and you can get rid of most if not all of that, search "printer drivers" and uninstall those too.
