Mouse unresponsive under X
I'm a rather new user to the Linux world, I have been using Ubuntu for a few months, and recently decided to try Slackware.
Not wanting to commit to anything, I set up a virtual machine with MS Virtual Machine 2004 on my Windows PC to test Slackware 12.
I did a full install, with xfce as the default window manager, as I liked the look of it from Xubuntu, and when I type startx, everything goes fine... until I try to use my mouse...
I have tried to setup the mouse using mouseconfig and xorgconfig (advice I found on a previous thread) as a Generic PS/2, Microsoft PS/2 Intellimouse (the actual mouse I have) and even copying the settings from my Mandrake 9.1 xorg.conf file (also running under MS Virtual Machine). None of these approaches seems to work.
I tested the mouse in KDE by booting to runlevel 4, but still no luck.
I would appreciate any help offered, as googling for 'slackware configure mouse' and variants just brings up mouseconfig and xorgconfig
