Where have you checked its enabled, in both iCloud and in iPhoto preferences.

Both iCloud and iPhoto.

Log out of iCloud in the System/iCloud preference pane and disable Photo Stream in iPhoto's Photo Share preference pane. Then log back in and re-enable, respectively. That should jump start Photo Stream.

I had the same problem: Photostream enabled in iOS devices and MacBookPro SysPrefs but not showing in iPhoto (mac). I resolved this issue by following the directions above (disable/enable) after I reconfigured the settings on my iOS devices.
My Apple ID and my icloud account are linked, but not the same. Under iOS settings-iCloud I signed out/deleted my Apple ID, and signed in using my Mobile Me/iCloud account (.mac or .me account). As soon as I did this Photostream appeared in iPhoto 9.4.2.
This is how I signed in to iCloud on my devices:
MacBookPro: @me.com (iCloud converted from a MobileMe account, originally a .Mac
iPad: @mac.com (iPad Calendars shows me logged in as @me.com)
Apple will not allow me to use a Me.com or Mac.com address as an Apple ID except on the iOS devices. I was able to purchase music on iTunes (iPhone) after signing in with @mac. It required authentication using my Apple ID (3rd party address).
Also, a persistent issue with Calendars resolved itself when I did this.

Darn, I was hoping this would do the trick:(

I can now drag photos into photstream, but still no automatice upload from mobile devices. Progress? Maybe. We'll see I guess.

Log out of icloud on all of your mobil devices and Macs (and in ihoto) and then log back in.. See if that will jumop start the Photo Share process. Also make sure all devices are ogged into the same iCloud accunt.
