I'm confused as to what you mean by "be recognized". I use a serial
mouse connection because I have an old KVM switch and serial cables.
I could go buy PS2 type cables and attach the mouse that way (the
mouse I use is actually PS2, but the KVM does the internal
conversion), but I've never had an issue.

I tell XFree/Xorg to use /dev/ttyS0 and it works. What else is
there to be recognized?
