Actually, you spelled 'Xorg' wrong: It begins with a capital 'X' (yes, it is case sensitive). Do it like so:

Code:
sudo Xorg -configure
Hence the capital X in the command. Remember: The terminal is CASE SENSITIVE!!!

You can not run 'Xorg -configure' while X is running. Theoretically once you plug in a USB mouse to your computer, it should just work in X. Does the mouse show up in 'dmesg' after you plug it in?

I just asked you if the mouse shows up in 'dmesg' after you plug it in.

After plugging in the mouse, open a terminal and run: lsusb and post the output here.
The lsusb command will list your usb devices that Ubuntu detects.
What kind of mouse is this? Most of them should be picked up and work with no problem.

Is one of those devices the mouse?
EDIT: I just saw the link to your mouse in your first post, sorry.
Also, after plugging in the mouse, run in the terminal:
Code:
dmesg | tail

So this is a bluetooth mouse? If it is, what do you see under: system > preferences > bluetooth in Ubuntu after plugging in the mouse.
Also, please run:
Code:
dmesg | tail
after plugging in the mouse.
I have no experience with using bluetooth devices in Ubuntu.
