For cameras
and for mouse:
modprobe usb-uhci (or usb-ohci, depending on your chipset)
modprobe hid
modprobe mousedev
See that X has mouse settings as:
Code:
Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier      "Generic Mouse"
        Driver          "mouse"
        Option          "SendCoreEvents"        "true"
        Option          "Device"                "/dev/input/mice"
        Option          "Protocol"              "ImPS/2"
EndSection
(the device and protocol lines are essential, other not).
