External mouse stopped working for my laptop.

It's been a while since I used external mouse for my laptop, so I'm not sure when the problem appeared, but I did recently updated xorg to 1.15 . It was never a problem before, so I'm have no idea what is wrong

Version used:
Code:

x11-base/xorg-server-1.15.0
+ + udev 
x11-base/xorg-drivers-1.15
 + + input_devices_evdev
 + + input_devices_synaptics
sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-3.10.26


dmesg output
Code:

[ 1915.424524] usb 5-1: new low-speed USB device number 12 using xhci_hcd
[ 1915.449980] usb 5-1: New USB device found, idVendor=046d, idProduct=c018
[ 1915.449994] usb 5-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0
[ 1915.450001] usb 5-1: Product: USB Optical Mouse
[ 1915.450007] usb 5-1: Manufacturer: Logitech


There are no new log output to xorg.0.log when I insert a mouse.

Any help is appreciated.

As you're talking about 'external mouse' I'll assume you're talking about a laptop.
So, pastebin the log.
Also, tell what kind of mouse it is.

input drivers must be compile after xorg, if you just update xorg, portage update xorg, it find evdev as dependency of xorg and so emerge it before xorg.
try emerge -1 xf86-input-evdev and just restart xorg and plug the mouse.

then look in your dmesg if you have any HID result, as it just show you have proper usb handling, but not that you have HID handling enable.

usb handling
Code:

[    6.871263] usb 6-1.1: new low-speed USB device number 3 using uhci_hcd
[    7.000201] usb 6-1.1: New USB device found, idVendor=045e, idProduct=002b
[    7.000203] usb 6-1.1: New USB device strings: Mfr=0, Product=1, SerialNumber=0
[    7.000204] usb 6-1.1: Product: Microsoft Internet Keyboard Pro

and next to it, you should see HID handling
Code:
[    7.042296] input: Microsoft Internet Keyboard Pro as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.0/usb6/6-1/6-1.1/6-1.1:1.0/input/input16
[    7.042465] generic-usb 0003:045E:002B.0002: input,hidraw1: USB HID v1.10 Keyboard [Microsoft Internet Keyboard Pro] on usb-0000:00:1d.0-1.1/input0


if in doubt look for CONFIG_HID in your kernel.

The only hid related output indmesg is

Code:

 sudo dmesg | grep  -i hid
[   10.534307] usbcore: registered new interface driver usbhid
[   10.534312] usbhid: USB HID core driver
