I've used this trackball without problems with Xorg. Here's the relevant
part of my xorg.conf;

 Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "MarbleMouse"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option      "Protocol"          "Auto"
        Option      "Device"            "/dev/psm0"
        Option      "Buttons"           "5"
        Option      "ZAxisMapping"      "4 5"
        Option      "ButtonMapping"     "3 2 1 6 7"
        Option      "CorePointer"       "on"

Note that this is for a left-handed person. For right-handed use, you
need to swap 3 and 1 in the ButtonMapping, IIRC.

Note that I _don't_ use moused(8).
