so the mouse is (eventually) attached to the machine via USB?

if so, then you need to load the usbmouse drivers and configure them.

I am not certain if debian includes these by default.  I use a USB
logitech trackman marble wheel on this laptop I'm usin, and the
configuration (kernel 2.2) for me is:


then i have this in /dev:
crw-rw----    1 root     root      13,  63 Feb 17 23:13 /dev/usbmouse

this in my XF86Config-4:
Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier "Mouse2"
	Driver	"mouse"
	Option "Protocol"	"IMPS/2"
	Option	"Device"	"/dev/usbmouse"
	Option "Zaxismapping" "4 5"

I load these modules on boot:
mousedev                3808   0  (unused)
hid                    11840   0  (unused)
input                   2880   0  [mousedev hid]

more info in the kernel documentation under Documentation/usb/input.txt

this of course is assuming your using a USB mouse of some sort, on
2.2 kernel

on my laptop I use 2 pointers, the internal track knob thing and
the usb mouse. which is why my Identifier is Mouse2 instead of
just Mouse.
