I could not get any help googling around.
Please a suggestion?

It seems to be solved. I'm reporting the procedure I followed.

Excellent. This should help with google queries :)
Operating system: Debian GNU/Linux 3.1 r2 "Sarge".

After the Debian base installation, I had chosen the manual
packages selection and installed the following packages:

make gcc less x-window-system gnome-session gnome-panel nautilus gnome-applets gnome-control-center gnome-system-tools gnome-core epiphany-browser libc6-dev kernel-source-2.4.27 cvs autotools-dev build-essential dpatch dpkg-dev g++ g++-3.3 libice-dev libjpeg62-dev liblockfile-dev libncurses5-dev libpng12-dev libpng3-dev libsm-dev libstdc++5-3.3-dev libtiff4-dev libtiffxx0 libungif4-dev libungif4g libx11-dev libxaw7-dev libxext-dev libxi-dev libxmu-dev libxmuu-dev libxp-dev libxpm-dev libxrandr-dev libxrender-dev libxt-dev libxtrap-dev libxtst-dev libxv-dev patch pm-dev render-dev texinfo x-dev xaw3dg xaw3dg-dev xlibs-dev xlibs-static-dev zlib1g-dev

. I did:

# apt-get install cupsys cupsys-bsd cupsys-client libcupsimage2 cupsys-driver-gimpprint cupsys-driver-gimpprint-data gs-esp

. Now, *without connecting to internet*, I pointed my web browser to:


. From there,

, and rebooted.

I don't see why you needed to reboot. It should work nearly as soon as you add the printer.
