Make sure you have xf86-input-evdev loaded or installed as well. Though, I do 
not believe any input device will work without that!

assuming you have a standard USB mouse plugged in, 

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier  "Mouse"
    Driver      "mouse"
    Option "Protocol"    "IMPS/2"       # IntelliMouse PS/2
    Option "Device"      "/dev/input/mice"
    Option "ZAxisMapping"   "4 5"

This is all I have for my setup.
