Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

# Identifier and driver
# On platforms where PnP mouse detection is supported the following
# protocol setting can be used when using a newer PnP mouse:
# Option "Protocol" "Auto"
# The available mouse protocols types that you can set below are:
# Auto BusMouse GlidePoint GlidePointPS/2 IntelliMouse IMPS/2
# Logitech Microsoft MMHitTab MMSeries Mouseman MouseManPlusPS/2
# MouseSystems NetMousePS/2 NetScrollPS/2 OSMouse PS/2 SysMouse
# ThinkingMouse ThinkingMousePS/2 Xqueue
Option "Protocol" "PS/2"
# The mouse device. The device is normally set to /dev/mouse,
# which is usually a symbolic link to the real device.
Try changing the Buttons to 7 and add a YAxis line similar to ZAxis.
Don't have that type of mouse myself but give it a shot. I'm just
stabbing at this.
(Edit: I also noticed that your BAUD and SAMPLE Rates are commented
out, try uncommenting those two lines and it should slow down. If you
google your mouse or look it up on the support website, if known, then
you can put the actual numbers there for that particular mouse.)
