These are my settings using a Logitech trackball. I believe most
standard mice will work with these. If you have a three button mouse
leave out Emulate3Buttons option. GPM must start before X does.
Identifier "XFree86 Configured"
Screen "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
Option "Protocol" "PS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/gpmdata"
