from ps2-mouse + ps2-kbd to usb-mouse + kbd

Hi folks,

I have a new kvm-switch that connects my mouse + keyboard with 1 usb connection. Before mouse and kbd were connected with ps2-cables.

But my computer won't detect this usb-mouse + kbd like Win7 did.
If I look into my xorg.conf I see this:

more xorg.conf 

Section "Screen"
	Identifier	"Default Screen"
	DefaultDepth	24

Section "Module"
	Load	"glx"

Section "Device"
	Identifier	"Default Device"
	Driver	"nvidia"
	Option	"NoLogo"	"True"
That might as well be Chinese, I don't know what that all means.
But how can I get my usb gear to work?

Any help is welcome.

The cause of the problem has been found: the kvm switch is defect.
After swapping the connections the other computer doesn't react on the mouse/keyboard.
