Can you show some troubleshooting data ? (results of dmesg, xorg.conf, lsusb, lspci, cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log). http://www.tuxradar.com/content/how-...linux-problems
We need to see any error by loading driver, booting etc.
What mouse model you have?

Whats your hardware specs?

I'm running an old Dell poweredge 2650 server, It needed a supported USB card for me to use my mouse.
I'm no linux guru yet, but you may want to try lspci command , as it useful to see if your system has recognised your USB Hosts.

if your running an old PS/2 or serial mouse (circler shaped connections), then I can't see whats wrong...

if your running a laptop, it most probably is using PS/2 - still try and find out if your system recognizes it though.

use "Man" to find out how to use lspci (ie type "man lspci").

sorry I can't help you anymore.
