Open a terminal or console and run:

Code:
su
<enter your root password>
alsaconf
alsactl store
When X is not running run this as root:

Code:
xorgsetup
answer the questions and you're mouse will work. Or you can manually edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf adding this to the right section:

Code:
Section "InputDevice"

    Option         "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

EndSection
