Stumbled upon this thread looking for answers to the same question... in my case it's Slackware 9.1 with a wireless Intellimouse Explorer. Works on Knoppix... it has to be something to do with the modules, since I've compared config files. I've yet to find a clear answer on the web for this issue... anyone have one?

i had the same problems with the intellimouse explorer wireless under slackware 9.1
the problem is the usbmouse module, it gets loaded by the hotplug system.
so put usbmouse in /etc/hotplug/blacklist so hotplug is prevented from loading it.

hope this helps

a finnal simple fix for IntelliMouse Explorer

Here is a fix for the problem with out having to blacklist hotplug or anything else. This worked for me on a clean install with Slackware 9.0 and 9.1, but it should work on all Slackware systems. Go to the following link to see how to fix IntelliMouse Explorer's problem

The last post by mr_nohj is the one to look at for Slackware distros.
If you have other distros check out the other posts at the above link.
I hope this helps
