Unhappy USB RF Mouse problem

Hi there!

I'm a newbie using mandrake 9.2 but I've tried a lot to solve this issue.
I have a USB Globlink RF mouse , keyboard & gamepads. They come as a USB composite (I think) as they use only a USB port for all of them.

The Keyboard works perfectly in linux but the mouse does not responds to buttons clicks. If you move it, it works fine, but if you press any of the buttons it does not.I have even the wheel working but not the buttons.

I did cat /dev/mouse /dev/input/mouse0 and when I move the mouse, I got wierd characters, so it's fine, but when I click, I don't get anything.

I did the same over /dev/usb/hiddev0 and I got response but I can't configure the mouse over that device.

Of course I have to say that they work fine over W95 as I have the driver for it.

I hope any of you can help me.

Thanks in advance
