Did you set up udev (or hotplug) to change ownership of the USB node
for the UPS (probably under either /proc/bus/usb or /dev/bus/usb)? See
scripts/udev or scripts/hotplug as appropriate.

Are you installing from source or RPMs?

If the udev/hotplug idea doesn't work, try starting the driver
manually to see what the error is:

/path/to/newhidups -a <name-of-ups> -DD
