You said that the mouse works in the console? Then you can tell X to get its
mouse input from gpm, like so:


	Protocol "intellimouse"
	Device "/dev/gpmdata"

The above has gpm doing protocol translation. As Jeff noted in a recent
thread, that does not always work optimally. You can also try it without:


	Protocol "PS/2"
	Device "/dev/gpmdata"
