adb_buttons=1 is not working. I put it in append line in quik.conf. My
mouse has "Apple Desktop Bus Mouse II" written below it, has 4 pins, only
one button and fits into the keyboard and works in MacOS. 

I've tried protocols BusMouse, PS/2, IMPS/2 and devices adb,
adbmouse, nvram, psaux, usbmouse and none are working. 

gpm-mouse-test says the possible types might be:
adbmouse, nvram, ttyS0, ttyS1, usbmouse
and for adbmouse, ps2, imps2, usbmouse it reports baudrate 9600 and below
even if mouse is not clicked (it becomes lesser with each keypress).

relevant parts of the dmesg output are given below

Where can I find BenH's pages?

It's not that I can't do without a mouse (considering that I'll configure
the machine as a server) but it'll certainly help. And also I'm new to
Mac, and relatively new to Debian so I do want to set up a working X on a
Mac monitor.
