1. Login as root or 'su' to root.
2. Edit your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4, if it exists. Otherwise, edit /etc/X11/XF86Config.
3. Look for the following lines and be sure they are present (this is for a PS/2 mouse or busmouse. I've also included a section for a USB wheel mouse).

*Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "TouchPad"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
Option "Protocol" "PS/2"

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "USB Mouse"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"

Make sure you also have a section like this (where you join all the individual parts of the X-11 config to create a layout).

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Home"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "TouchPad" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "USB Mouse" "SendCoreEvents"
Screen 0 "Screen LCD"

Your labels (Home, Keyboard0, TouchPad, USB Mouse, and Screen LCD") may be unique to your environment.

Also, check your XF86 log: 'less /var/log/XFree86.0.log'. Scroll through it and see if you find any errors, especially at the end of the log.

See what you have and get back to us.
