Although I don't have any experience with USB mice - and I am not sure from your
post whether you think your problem lies with changing keyboards/mice or
re-running the Xconfigurator, but you could try running the mouseconfig utility -
it **should** autodetect the mouse type and alter the XF86Config entries
accordingly. I had some problems with mouseconfig seg faulting under XFree86
3.3.6 with an ADB mouse, but you can use the --noprobe option to prevent this.
If that fails try looking for the Pointer section in the XF86Config file - it
should have entries for Protocol, Device and Buttons. For a adb mouse the
Protocol should probably be "BusMouse" and the Device "/dev/mouse" for usb I am
guessing it should be something like Protocal "IMPS2" and "/dev/usbmouse" -
although the protocol may depend on exactly what kind of mouse it is. Hope this
