Default Trouble installing wacom tablet

I am having trouble installing a Wacom Bamboo CTH-460 onto an HP-G72.
I have followed the instructions at:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wacom

The only discrepancy that I am aware of is that it told me to install
xserver-xorg-input-wacom and wacom-tools. I attempted this and Synaptic
intalled the first pkg and said that the wacom-tools were now included
in that first package.

However, I still cannot get the tablet to be recognized by either Gimp
or MyPaint. I have rebooted several times.

The instructions are at:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wacom

All mentions of wacom here:

The CTL-460 still needs more recent kernel drivers than are installed in
Maverick. You can get new drivers from
http://linuxwacom.sourceforge.net/index.php/dl.
The current version is linuxwacom-0.8.8-10.tar.bz2. Save these in a
convenient location. Then open a terminal (Applications > Accessories >
Terminal) and execute the following commands

tar jxvf linuxwacom-0.8.8-10.tar.bz2 #(unpacks the archive)
cd linuxwacom-0.8.8-10
./configure --enable-wacom
cd src/2.6.30/
make
sudo cp wacom.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/input/tablet/
#(installs the wacom module)
sudo rmmod wacom # Only needed if you already have a wacom module in use
sudo modprobe wacom

The wacom pen should work immediately if everything else is set up

Notes:
1. ./configure and make should give you messages about X server version
and drivers not enabled in your kernel config. These are not a problem
2. Maverick (and Lucid) have all the packages you need to build the
wacom module. But they may not all be installed. You can use synaptic or
apt-get to install them if ./configure or make throw up error messages.
The most obvious packages are make, gcc and the kernel headers.
3. You will have to rebuild the wacom module each time you get a new
kernel version, including security updates.

Thank you, John. That is certainly explicit. But, I was also wondering
why the package on Synaptic xserver-xorg-input-wacom will not work. It
seems to be newer (0.10.5) and it has already been compiled and placed
in the appropiate directories. All that seems to be needed is the "sudo
modprobe wacom". Yet, even after the modprobe, it is not recognized by
gimp. The X server is 1.76. Is that greater than 1.7?
