I have Ubuntu 9.04. Every time I start the computer I have to restart it several times to cause mouse working. The mouse is ok - it works under Vista. I also tried other mouse and there is the same problem.
It is no problem to cause mouse working by typing after Ubuntu loaded:
However, I cannot use remote controler because lirc is not working with manual added psmouse module. The above rmmod shows that psmouse is loaded even if mouse doesn't work.rmmod psmouse
I tried to add 'psmouse' to /etc/modules and file with options to /etc/modprobe.d/. But it doesn't work.
I tried to change configuration within xorg.conf. And it also doesn't work.
I tried to add 'sudo modprobe psmouse' to rc.local - it doesn't work.
I cannot understand why mouse works in random way.
These are dmesg infos when mouse works:

I found the solution. The reason for this was not proper configuration of lirc. Simply lirc was connected to mouse and nor remote doesn't work neither mouse. Specify proper name for lirc device:
not /dev/input/event5, but:
