The tutorial you used is obsolete. With GIMP 2.8, the color is taken
from the gradient if at least one box is checked in the Color row of
the mapping matrix for the current paint dynamics. See for example the
Random Color paint dynamics.
Depending on what you intend to do, you'll probably have to define a
new paint dynamics, using the proper button in the Paint Dynamics
