How do you use a touch screen as mouse input?

Hi, I have just ported Ubuntu 9.10 to my ArmV6 tablet pc.

I have used tslib to get my touch screen working and I have managed to calibrate using ts_calibrate. Ubuntu picks up the touch screen fine in the calibration app but it won't move the mouse or anything, is there anything I must do to "link" them together?
