Thanks to all, guys.
I applied Morten's advice on updmap,and now it prints ok.
I even tried the euro font, which cause me the problem all the time.
Strange that Vittorio was OK with this (same OS, with apt-get Latex stuff) : did you tune this updmap thing, or
run all by default ?

I really appreciated your feedback (btw I'm using Sarge Debian with CUPS, and
my printer is an Epson480..)
