I have a strange problems with a wireless USB mouse which is detected, but not working.
When I plug it in:
Code:
[  509.039103] hub 5-0:1.0: port 1, status 0301, change 0001, 1.5 Mb/s
[  509.143086] hub 5-0:1.0: debounce: port 1: total 100ms stable 100ms status 0x301

Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

The modules are loaded:
Code:
# lsmod | egrep 'usb|mouse'
usbhid                 19639  0
psmouse                56986  0

And I have xorg-drivers emerged with mouse in INPUT_DEVICES:
Code:
=================================================================
                        Package Settings
=================================================================

x11-base/xorg-drivers-1.14 was built with the following:
USE="" INPUT_DEVICES="evdev mouse synaptics -acecad -aiptek -elographics -fpit -hyperpen -joystick -keyboard -mutouch -penmount -tslib -vmmouse -void -wacom" VIDEO_CARDS="intel -apm -ast -chips -cirrus -dummy -epson -fbdev -fglrx -geode -glint -i128 -i740 -mach64 -mga -modesetting -neomagic -nouveau -nv -nvidia -omap -omapfb -qxl -r128 -radeon -radeonsi -rendition -s3virge -savage -siliconmotion -sisusb -sunbw2 -suncg14 -suncg3 -suncg6 -sunffb -sunleo -suntcx -tdfx -tga -trident -tseng -v4l -vesa -via -virtualbox -vmware -voodoo"

Is there anything I'm missing?

Is anything logged /var/log/Xorg.0.log? Something from evdev regarding a mouse?

Looks like it is recognized, but still...
My touchpad works okay though. It was working okay without any configuration, using evdev (but no special features, e.g. scrolling, tap-to-click etc.).
Had to configure it with Synaptics driver to add the special stuff.

I believe the key to your solution lies in this line:
Code:
   [   157.971] (II) No input driver specified, ignoring this device. 

Apparently you have to add the extra input. I expect because you already have one for the touchpad.

I've added this to 30-touchpad.conf (dont mind the name, I'll take care of it once this is sorted):
Code:
$ egrep -v '^(#|$)' /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/30-touchpad.conf
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "touchpad catchall"
        Driver "synaptics"
        MatchIsTouchpad "on"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Option "TapButton1" "1"
        Option "TapButton2" "2"
        Option "RBCornerButton" "3"
        Option "VertEdgeScroll" "1"
EndSection
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "touchpad ignore duplicates"
        MatchIsTouchpad "on"
        MatchOS "Linux"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/mouse*"
        Option "Ignore" "on"
EndSection
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "pointer catchall"
        Driver "mouse"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event9"
        Option "ZAxisMapping"   "4 5"
        Option "Buttons"        "5"
EndSection
Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "pointer ignore duplicates"
        MatchOS "Linux"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/mouse*"
        Option "Ignore" "on"
EndSection


Now /var/log/Xorg.0.log looks like this:

Any further ideas?
I have a friend with virtually the same configuration and his USB mouse is working without any additional configuration whatsoever (just the touchpad is configured exactly the same way as mine).
The difference is that mine is a wireless one from Trust and he's using a cable one from A4Tech.

I see we are making progress; there is a driver loaded but it ignores your mouse. I fails to see exactly why it does so. Here are some more ideas:
  • You have InputClasses with overlapping match-criteria (the MatchDevicePath). You can make the InputClasses more specific with additional match criteria:
    Code:
    MatchIsPointer "true"

  • You can remove the driver from the "pointer catchall"; see this thread?
  • How about adding a specific InputDevice definition?

It is already true - do you mean "on" instead of "true" :? :
Code:
xtz@Xecutor ~ $ grep -A 3 -B 2 -i pointer /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-evdev.conf

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "evdev pointer catchall"
        MatchIsPointer "on"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"
        Driver "evdev"
EndSection
xtz@Xecutor ~ $

Then I get:

[698838.573] (II) No input driver specified, ignoring this device.

Do you mean a specific one for /dev/input/mouse1?

You would NEVER believe what the problem was:
Code:
CONFIG_HID_SUNPLUS:
  │
  │ Support for Sunplus wireless desktop.
  │
  │ Symbol: HID_SUNPLUS [=m]
  │ Type  : tristate
  │ Prompt: Sunplus wireless desktop
  │   Location:
  │     -> Device Drivers
  │       -> HID support
  │         -> HID bus support (HID [=m])
  │           -> Special HID drivers
  │   Defined at drivers/hid/Kconfig:628
  │   Depends on: INPUT [=y] && HID [=m]

As most of the time, the kernel documentation is quite descriptive, so why wouldn't I enable that for a USB mouse? :x :evil:
