    yes, you can change it in your /etc/X11/XF86Config or /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file.

    Since you're running Slack, use mouseconfig to change your mouse type. Then, you can either run xorgconfig or manually edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf to set up the mouse for X.
    OH NOOOOO!!!!!! You did it the way I said?
