    Try adding this to your /etc/X11/XF86Config file as well as the xorg.conf file. You need to be root to do this. Also delete any previous reference to a mouse in those files.

    Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier "Mouse1"
    Driver "mouse"
    Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
    Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"

    Another thing is, during installation, did you select a generic driver for the mouse or a specalised driver? is your mouse PS2 or USB?
