Is their a way to get the pressure sensitivity of my Wacom Bamboo Capture tablet working with GIMP.  Is 
tablets pressure sensitivity still unavailable to GIMP 2.8.2 Mac OS X?

I have a Wacom Bamboo, and I have Gimp from the source repository. So
I can confirm it works well in the last version. :-)

There are 2 tricks.

1/ As someone said, you may have to plug your tablet *before* starting Gimp.

But I doubt this is your issue. My bet is:

2/ Go in Edit > Input Devices.
You should see a list of devices showing up in the list for your tablet, ie:
Wacom Bamboo
Wacom Bamboo cursor/erasor/pad/stylus

Go into each one of them. By default, the mode will be "Disabled".
Change it to "Screen".
After you have changed all of them, "Save" and "Close".
Try again. You'll have pressure sensitivity. Enjoy.
