The permissions should probably be checked first when a message like 
this comes
out, but ...  In the:
$cat /etc/group

I don't see where the permissions for printer stands, if someone could
teach us something, there ? the only clue that could look like it,
belong to the dialout group, and have also cupsys in it ?
That's what I've got in this file.

good start. Did you try with OpenOffice ?

driver and module is the same brand of software.
