Angry Mouse in Slackware's KDE


Everytime I load up Slack's KDE, my mouse goes haywire. It won't click or move left and right. I would jsut switch to Gnome, but I don't know how to do that from the prompt
Mouse: Microsoft Wireless Blue

xwmconfig to change the default window manager. As far as wireless devices, can't help you there.

If your mouse is moving strangely, you might check /etc/rc.d/rc.gpm.

it defines the mouse protocol you use at the console.
if it differs from /etc/X11/XF86Config, your mouse will act weird.

PS/2 (normal mouse), and ImPS/2 (mouse with wheel) are not compatible.

I have the same mouse and at first it wouldn't work till I changed the 'Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"' in XF86Config

Here's the mouse section from my XF86Config:

Code:
Section "InputDevice"

# Identifier and driver

    Identifier	"Mouse1"
    Driver	"mouse"
    Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
    Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
    Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    Option "Buttons" "5"
    Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
