	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?
