    Question Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical USB and PS/2 Compatibale

    Hi. I have a "Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical USB and PS/2 Compatibale", but I don't know how to configure X to make it work. Right now, I also have a non-USB mouse ("IntelliMouse 1.3A PS/2 Compatible") that is working fine. But how do I get the optical USB mouse to work?

    The responsible part in /etc/X11/xorg.conf looks like this right now:
    Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier     "Configured Mouse"
        Driver         "mouse"
        Option         "CorePointer"
        Option         "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
        Option         "Protocol" "ImPS/2"
        Option         "Emulate3Buttons" "true"
        Option         "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    How should I change it to get the USB mouse to work?

    Use Auto for the protocol, that usually works.
