Mouse with Debian on Vaio F340

My mouse (trackpad) does not work after installing many packages,
including gnome related, on my Sony Vaio F340.  I have
/dev/mouse in /etc/XF86Config and I linked
ln -s /dev/psaux /dev/mouse.  Does anyone have an idea what
to do next or how I might probe to check it out?
