    If you open up your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file in a terminal with
    Code:
    su
    [rootpass]
    nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    and change the section that is about your mouse to
    Driver "mouse"
    Identifier "Mouse1"
    Option "Buttons" "5"
    Option "Device" "/dev/mouse"
    Option "Name" "Autodetection"
    Option "Protocol" "explorerps/2"
    Option "Vendor" "Sysp"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    and then save and ctlr+alt+backspace and it now should work.


    i mconfused.. Where does it go?? # ************************************************** ********************
    # 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"

    Try
    Code:
    # 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 "Buttons" "5" 
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5" 
    # Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
    # Option "Device" "/dev/ttyS0"
    # Option "Device" "/dev/ttyS1"
    Remember - you have to restart your X server with Ctrl-Alt-Backspace for the change to take effect.

    I'd try getting it to read
    # 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" "explorerps/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 "Buttons" "5"
    Option "Vendor" "Sysp"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    # Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
    # Option "Device" "/dev/ttyS0"
    # Option "Device" "/dev/ttyS1"
    you need more options with slack than other distro's.
