    This is what I wrote in my theme style.css

    /*
    Theme Name: Twenty Eleven Child
    Theme URI: ....................
    Description: Tema Child per Twenty Eleven
    Author: ..............
    Template: twentyeleven
    Version: 1.5
    */

    @import url("../twentyeleven/style.css");

    Everything is correct!!
    Help!!!

    Your header says twentyeleven -- which does not work for twentytwelve. Try this:

    /*
    Theme Name: Twentytwelve Child
    Description: Child theme for the twentytwelve theme
    Author: Your name here
    Template: twentytwelve
    */
    
    @import url("../twentytwelve/style.css");

    make sure to have the latest version of wp3.5.1 installed, and make sure that the Twenty Twelve theme is also installed;

    if not, install it from http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/twentytwelve
