The bone wont be connected to the mesh that you are attempting to paint - that's why. otherwise it would work, or perhaps it isn't connected in the correct fashion.
if it moves: it's connected. ( it probably is )
attempt the same thing on other meshes, delete the bone - re-add it. try things that would usually fix a computer:
Turn it on + off ( delete it and re-add it ) Try on other meshes.
Well for starters your weight is set to zero. That is the amount of influence you want your mesh to have. So it would bring down the values to zero. However, if you want to lower the value then you are on the right on.
However I think your main issue is that you don't have the correct object in weight paint mode. It seems the ears are in weight paint mode but ont the rest of the mesh. Make sure to either make them part of the same object by sellecting both and hitting "CTRL+J" or, parent the body to the armature by sellecting the mesh THEN the armature an hitting "Shift+P."
