I didn't comment to that message (for exactly the reasons in the  
subject field) and you seemed to be in the process of figuring stuff  
out yourself (which we prefer, since then people actually learn,

Please post the present status of the

1) usbhid-ups (driver)
2) if 1) is running, the upsd (server)
3) if 2) is running, the upsmon (client)

It might also help to upgrade to a more recent version of NUT (2.4.1),  
since the version you're running now (2.2.2) seems to be quite outdated.

Best regards, Arjen

PS  Don't post strace output, since unless you know exactly what  
you're looking for, it will just wastes bandwidth. The right amount of  
-D options is easier on our eyes.
