BrlTty defunct after upgrading Gutsy to Hardy

I've upgraded a laptop from Gutsy to Hardy using this method:
	sudo aptitude update
	sudo aptitude full-upgrade
to first full upgrade Gutsy. Then: 
	sudo aptitude install update-manager-core
	sudo do-release-upgrade

For brltty it proposed me to keep the current one, idem for the brltty.conf,
that's the standard action; I ignore what to do so I simply pressed ENTER.

The current brltty seems to be 3.9, so in fact it has upgraded it anyway.
Why answering then things if it upgrades anyway?

But now there is no any brltty when booting;
and whe doing  ps ax |grep -i brl ENTER  for checking if it is started,
I can't see any process started automatically.

And I still have the same brltty.conf as before with my de (german) table.

Note: due to the bug in the Gutsy, at that moment I had recommented some
raws to prevent some actions but I don't remember in which file it was and
if that have caused tje problem now?

Here are my conf files in attach.
