I have a P&T too, and it works perfectly in GIMP-2.8 (running on Fedora 17 plus 
some dependencies); here are some tips:

* When the device is greyed out, it usually means GIMP found the device before, 
and still remembers about it, but cannot find it any more. Perhaps it worked in 
GIMP-2.6, and GIMP-2.8 copied the configuration files from there, but the 
device is no longer visible.

* If you compiled GTK+ yourself, remember to add the "--with-xinput" parameter 
to the "configure" script, or GIMP will not find your tablet; this little 
detail drove me crazy for many, many hours.

Hope this helps.
