Hi Marta:

I just did this myself with Ubuntu 11.10.  For some strange reason on 
Ubuntu (and Debian I suppose), you need to manually add the ess 
directory to the load-path since it does not happen automatically (why 
god why?).  Anyways, I did it like this:

(debian-pkg-add-load-path-item "/usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/ess")
