People seem to have found a range of different answers. I have a 3
button PS/2 Logitech Trackman Marble (no wheel, thank god) and I found
that if I set gpm to ps2 and repeating ps2 then gpm wouldn't work at
all. To get gpm and X co-operating fully I had
gpm using /dev/psaux as ps2 type and repeating as ms3
/dev/mouse pointing to /dev/gpmdata
X using /dev/mouse as an Intellimouse.
