Don't know what X config file Ubuntu uses but you'll want to check the Section "InputDevice" in one of the following files... If it does use xorg.conf it's probably link to XF86Config anyway...

cat /etc/X11/XF86Config

cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf

It's probably an incorrect driver but not having an optical mouse I could not tell you what driver to use... do some google searches for ubuntu x config files for optical mouse...
