The Hardware-HOWTO at
http://www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/Hardware-HOWTO-19.html#ss19.1 doesn't
mention Kensington per say, but it does claim that PS/2 mice are

Look in the "Section 'Pointer" area of your /etc/X11/XF86Config file.
What are the relevant lines there (particularly "Protocol" and
"Device")? I believe the protocol needs to be "ps2" and the device needs
to be "/dev/psaux".
