The first thing to do is to make sure the software can find the mouse.
Work out which serial port your mouse is connected to - usually this
/dev/ttyS0 (COM1 under DOS) or
ttyS0 is usually the 9 pin socket,
25 pin socket, but of course there is no hard and fast rule about these
things.) There are also an equivalent number of
which are almost the same as the
ttyS ones, but their use is
now discouraged. For convenience make a
/dev/mouse pointing at this port. For instance,
ln -s /dev/ttyS0 /dev/mouse
