One of the few things I really do not like in Linux is the mouse
interface. I hope this will be fixed soon, but for now there are at
least two different mouse drivers. One is the driver used by the X
interface, configured with xf86config or XF86Setup; the other is used
by console programs, called gpm and configured with gpmconf -- or
something like that.
Which of them you tried?
