no big deal, heres how to fix it.

change to run level 3, log on as root, edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Now scroll down to "input device" and edit it so it looks like this.
Code:
Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Mouse0"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option      "Protocol" "auto"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/mouse"
        Option      "Buttons" "5"
        Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
        Option      "CorePointer"
EndSection
go back to runlevel 4, and wala!
if you still have problems change the proto from auto to "IMPS/2"

Well, you choose to load Slackware...

Ask yourself what provides CLI or X mouse services? What package is it in? Does it come with a man page that explains the features or settings? Does it come with a config to tweak? (and do try searching LQ).

Finally please don't use vague descriptions like "it moves like shit": instead say it moves slow or sluggish or like that.
