right, you have to set up your X-Server correctly, which Ubuntu doesnt right now.
So your problem is rather a Ubuntu issue.

since I've already answered this privately and there are obviously still
questions about it, I'll post the solution here:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Configured Mouse"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option      "CorePointer"
        Option      "Protocol" "evdev"
        Option      "Dev Phys" "usb-0000:00:02.1-2/input0"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/input/event2"
        Option      "Buttons" "8"
        Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
        Option      "Resolution" "800"

you can find out the correct "Dev Phys"/ "Device" by:
"cat /proc/bus/input/devices"
