 I'm really pleased you've made progress.  But since kde,
even 3.5, is a *large* undertaking, may I suggest that you
try something simpler (I imagine that kde without a mouse
is not a pleasant experience).  A basic window manager
(for those of the hair-shirt persuasion, twm is in the book,
for the rest of us, something like fluxbox is a straight CMMI
without additional dependencies - works for me)
and then a terminal - either xterm or rxvt-unicode.

 With those, you should be able to follow the book to test
Xorg and confirm if the mouse is working.

 Whenever possible, it's much easier to debug problems
when they are kept simple.

After tragedy, and farce, "OMG poneys!"
