OS: Ubuntu 11.04
Arch: AMD64
Desktop Manager: Gnome 3

I recently blew away my Ubuntu 10.10 and installed 11.04.  
Not liking Unity, I figured I would try Gnome 3.  After 
getting Gnome 3 set up, I downloaded babl,gegl, and gimp 
tarballs and proceeded to install all sorts of dependencies
(required and many optional ones) via apt-get packages. 

I then 
compiled babl(0.1.4), gegl(0.1.6), glib(2.29.8) gtk+(2.24.5) 
and finally gimp 2.7.3(note that all the above are from 
the gimp.org ftp site.   Prior to compiling gtk+, gimp 
failed on the make with some really strange errors(sorry... 
I don't have them any more) which is why I compiled my own 
copy.   Also note, ALL of the above were compile into a 
different prefix with :

./configure --prefix=/home/joefrazierjr/opt

Once I finally got GIMP compiled, I can see my tablet 
in the input devices, but they are greyed out along with 
all of the below: 
SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad
Virtual core XTEST Pointer
Wacom Bamboo Fun 6x8 cursor
Wacom Bamboo Fun 6x8 eraser
Wacom Bamboo Fun 6x8 pad
Wacom Bamboo Fun 6x8 stylus

The ONLY thing that is NOT greyed out is Core Pointer.  

The main reason I complied is because for whatever reason,
the PPA package available does not also install Python(but
 does let the tablet work), so I am kind of stuck here.

Note that I am comfortable with "using" the shell, but am 
a power user in linux, so please assume that I know nothing
about linux in any replies.  Also, if I need to remove, any 
of the compiled code and recompile, I assume running "make clean"
will fix it up correctly?  

Note, my Bamboo Fun works fine in MyPaint(with pressure sensitivity,
etc), so the issue is with either GIMP compile itself or GTK apps
in general(I have no idea if MyPaint is GTK or not so someone might be
able to rule that out).

Also, I still have the build folders, so if I need to link to any of
the config.log files, please let me know and I will put on my dropbox.

Thanks or any help!
