this is a complete shot in the dark, but maybe it helps. some time ago i
configured my usb-mouse to have all extra-buttons working and found some
how-to's that deal with 'evdev'.
so the point is to set things like that: (my mouse for example)
Option "Protocol" "evdev"
Option "Dev Phys" "usb-0000:00:02.1-1/input0"
Option "Dev Name" "B16_b_02 USB-PS/2 Optical Mouse"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
to find out which devices are there you
and to find out what events get triggered when moving and clicking the
device you run 'xev'. this opens a litte window where you move and click
the device and the terminal shows some useful output.
maybe its worth to look at this direction...
