Mouse problems in KDE

I've finally managed to get KDE installed in Debian Linux. However, the mouse (in PS2 port) doesn't want to work.

After boot up the mouse pointer goes to the top left corner of the screen, and moving the mouse will move the pointer briefly before returning to the top left, and randomly appear to have it's buttons depressed. Some sort of configuration issue, but I don't know how to configure it.

The mouse is a Logitech 3 button configured in XF86config as Logitech Mouseman on /dev/psaux. Any ideas how to fix this?

Replying to my own question - the protocol should have been IMPS/2 and not MouseMan.
