phpMyAdmin tracking problem

After installing phpMyAdmin 3.3.2deb1 on a Ubuntu 10.04 server with MySQL 5.1.41 I got this error massage when logging on to phpMyAdmin:
The additional features for working with linked tables have been deactivated. To find out why click here.

$cfg[‘Servers’][$i][‘tracking’] … not OK [ Documentation ] Tracking: Disabled

I sloved this by editing /etc/phpmyadmin/config.inc.php and added
$cfg[‘Servers’][$i][‘tracking’] = ‘pma_tracking’;
to the $cfg[‘Servers’][$i] section

    didn’t work for me. I put that in the same place but still get the error.

    You’re probably missing a table in your pmadb. As described in Documentation.html, we provide scripts/create_tables.sql which will create the missing tables (you just need to import this file).

    Go to phpMyAdmin SQL and import \phpMyAdmin\scripts\create_tables.sql and run it. Or just open create_tables.sql copy everything and paste in the sql tab in phpMyAdmin and click “Go” button.
    This should solve your problem.

    Don’t forget to restart the services Apache and MySQL
