as the mouse doesn't work, but the HID-Device gets recognized: how will i bring this mouse to life?? do i have to use a specific driver for this?

Assuming you're not talking about console mouse support but of XFree86 mouse support, you should edit your XFree86Config-4 file (usually found in /etc/X11/). Try using the ImPS/2 protocol and the /dev/input/mice input device. Something like this:
Code:
Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier	"Configured Mouse"
	Driver		"mouse"
	Option		"CorePointer"
	Option		"Device"		"/dev/input/mice"
	Option		"Protocol"		"ImPS/2"
	Option		"Emulate3Buttons"	"true"
	Option		"ZAxisMapping"		"4 5"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"
Option "CorePointer"
EndSection

#Section "InputDevice"

# If the normal CorePointer mouse is not a USB mouse then
# this input device can be used in AlwaysCore mode to let you
# also use USB mice at the same time.
# Identifier "DevInputMice"
# Driver "mouse"
# Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
# Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
# Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
# Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
#EndSection

...funny, isnt't it?? the 2nd 'inputdevice' i have commented out right now....i added also the corepointer-option...will test this evening
