Well the obvious question is what port and socket is Postgres running on? 
My guess is that something is expecting /var/run/postgresql but the 
actual socket directory is /tmp. Debian doesn't like using /tmp, so you 
are probably using Debian (or Ubuntu). The easiest solution may be 
to simply adjust your postgresql.conf and add /tmp to your 
unix_socket_directories. That way programs are happy no matter which 
socket directory they expect.
