My pen/tablet seem not to recognize brushes?

My pen/tablet seem not to recognize brushes?
So I'm on Mac OS 10.6, using a Wacom Bamboo and Gimp 2.8.

I'm trying to get it so that my brush tapers with pressure sensitivity. No matter what I do to brush settings, when I use the pen on the tablet to draw it gives me the same brush style, with pressure altering opaqueness. When I draw with my mouse, it will use the brush/settings I have selected. (For example, in the attached photo, the line of stars was drawn with the mouse, the other line with the pen, and even tough clearly the star brush is selected, the pen isn't drawing it. It does this regardless of which brush I pick or what settings I alter.)

What gives? I've spent the last 2 hours researching causes and fixes and have come up dry. This seems like such a simple thing to address and I can't figure it out. Please help TT_TT

I am assuming when say 'taper' you mean 'size'?
If so you will need a Dynamic that alters Size based on Pressure.
Do you have one?
Do you know how to create Dynamics?

Well at least it seems Gimp is recognising the Pen pressure Wink
Without seeing the Device Status dialog it's hard to know what is going on, perhaps have a read below and then reply as you feel appropriate.

Be aware that when you are using a tablet together with a mouse each input device has it's own tool settings.
Use Windows->Dockable Dialogs->Device Status to show which tools are currently associated with each device.

You must use the Tablet Pen to choose the Brush Tool, Brush, Dynamic etc. to set that device up, and when you use the mouse to choose things, that device will use those options.

I see in your image the Dynamic you have chosen is called 'untitled' - can you show us a snapshot of the settings for that Dynamic?
