Access control is governed by the file $PGDATA/pg_hba.conf.  The
relevant line in that file is specifying "ident sameuser"
authentication, which means that it expects the postgresql user to have
the same name as the unix user; if your unix login were "philippe" it
would work.

Create a postgresql user with the same name as your login and try again.
