    This is what in the XF86Config file

    # ************************************************** ********************
    # Core Pointer's InputDevice section
    # ************************************************** ********************

    Section "InputDevice"

    # Identifier and driver

    Identifier "Mouse1"
    Driver "mouse"

    # On platforms where PnP mouse detection is supported the following
    # protocol setting can be used when using a newer PnP mouse:

    # Option "Protocol" "Auto"

    # The available mouse protocols types that you can set below are:
    # Auto BusMouse GlidePoint GlidePointPS/2 IntelliMouse IMPS/2
    # Logitech Microsoft MMHitTab MMSeries Mouseman MouseManPlusPS/2
    # MouseSystems NetMousePS/2 NetScrollPS/2 OSMouse PS/2 SysMouse
    # ThinkingMouse ThinkingMousePS/2 Xqueue
    Option "Protocol" "PS/2"

    # The mouse device. The device is normally set to /dev/mouse,
    # which is usually a symbolic link to the real device.

    Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
    # Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
    # Option "Device" "/dev/ttyS0"
    # Option "Device" "/dev/ttyS1"

    # When using XQUEUE, comment out the above two lines, and uncomment
    # the following line.

    # Option "Protocol" "Xqueue"

    # Baudrate and SampleRate are only for some Logitech mice. In
    # almost every case these lines should be omitted.

    # Option "BaudRate" "9600"
    # Option "SampleRate" "150"

    # Emulate3Buttons is an option for 2-button Microsoft mice
    # Emulate3Timeout is the timeout in milliseconds (default is 50ms)
