    Why dont you try making them the same? if the ubuntu xorg.conf works, use the values from that.

    you're clearly not using the same devices or protocol in your ubuntu config compared to the slackware config

    maybe thats the reason? especially if it works in ubuntu

    I have a similar problem when I installed Slack on a computer with a wireless USB mouse! Eventhough I can't really remember what I did to fix it, I think specifying that it was a 7 button mouse (4 buttons + wheel) helped. Try that and let us know if it works.
