Mouse And Keybord Problem


I have read a lot about this problem but i still can't find solution to my problem

I am using sata.i kernel.

I have installed Slack 10.1 (without HOTPLUG) and in Text-Mode everything is working perfectly, but when i start KDE even my LEDS on keybord stop working and also mouse do nothing...

Keybord is UNIKEY KWD-203 (It is old but working well) connected with PS/2

Mouse is LOGITECH M-BJ58/M-BT58 OPTICAL WHEEL MOUSE connected with USB.

Here is my xorg.conf

Code:
InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
Code:
Section "InputDevice"
Identifier  "Keyboard0"
Driver      "kbd"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier  "Mouse0"
Driver      "mouse"
Option	    "Protocol" "auto"
Option	    "Device" "/dev/mouse"
EndSection
I tried to change mouse Device into /dev/input/mice; /dev/psaux; /dev/ttyS0; /dev/ttyS1 but still it didn't work. Also i tried add options "AlwaysCore" and "SendCoreEvents" but results are the same...

Any suggestions ?

P.S.

Well, hotplug would probably help with the usb mouse, but either way try running xorgsetup.

At this point I could only suggest trying another keyboard.

I checked PKGTOOL and yes there is GPM...

Ok buy a new keybord but still how about a mouse ?

And if I decide to buy a new keybord which is better USB or PS/2 ?

You can always use an USB<->PS/2 converter

in my Desktop, i use PS/2 for mouse and keyboard (actually the mouse was using PS/2, but i use a converter) --> i bought this at 2001, so it's kindda old system, but still works

in my laptop, i use USB mouse and yes, it worked both

so i prefer to buy USB mouse/keyboard and use converter if the system can't detect them.
