Can you show some troubleshooting data ? (results of dmesg, xorg.conf, lsusb, lspci, cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log).
We need to see any error by loading driver, booting etc.
What mouse model you have?

Whats your hardware specs?

I'm running an old Dell poweredge 2650 server, It needed a supported USB card for me to use my mouse.
I'm no linux guru yet, but you may want to try lspci command , as it useful to see if your system has recognised your USB Hosts.

if your running an old PS/2 or serial mouse (circler shaped connections), then I can't see whats wrong...

if your running a laptop, it most probably is using PS/2 - still try and find out if your system recognizes it though.

use "Man" to find out how to use lspci (ie type "man lspci").

sorry I can't help you anymore.
