Then you need to configure configuration file at /etc/X11/xorg.conf

What mouse you exactly have?

Some links I found so far, that might help you: - good tutorial

I searched so -

After changing /etc/X11/xorg.conf you need to log off and then log in to 
have changes in effect. Or just do restart if logging of did not have 
effect. I mentioned, that in Ubuntu e.g. changing modeline it does not 
help if I log off (doing restart to X server) - I need to restart 
computer to have changes in effect.
