I've searched on severaly forums for a solution but none seems to help at all. I am using Debian and my USB keyboard works but I can't get my USB mouse to work. I would use a PS/2 mouse if I haven't fryed the ports. So what do I do?

Here is a couple things that u probably need:

XF86Config-4 file(part of it):

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

I tried:
apt-get install hotplug


doesnt help at all

i also tried cat /dev/input/mice <it says no such file or directory

i added usbcore and usb-uhci to /etc/modules


what should i do next??

It's been a while since i used my usb mouse in the usb port (i have a usb-ps2 converter), but i think you need the driver 'mousedev' and possibly a driver called 'usbmouse'. Try probing those and see if you can get output from /dev/input/mice.

Thx! Trying to figure that out now.
