I am new as new can be, how do I tell what driver I am supposed to be using? I am confused by the whole proprietary vs open source driver. This is what I have.

I am having trouble with my mouse and wondered if this has something to do with it. How do I tell what driver I am actually using. 10.04 Lucid Lynx upgraded from 9.10
