View Full Version : [all variants] Setting up Bluetooth Mouse

February 8th, 2009, 12:20 AM

I'm having a small issue setting up my bluetooth mouse.

I have download bluez-compat and get use the mouse by using the following
sudo hidd --search

However i am getting very frustrated having to turn on my mouse to allow it to be picked up and having to use the command above to get the mouse connected. I have to do this process every time my mouse either goes to sleep to save power or when i reboot.

I would like the mouse to stay connected whenever it is within range of my laptop.

If anyone could help it would be much appreciated, its been like this for 2 weeks now!!!

Thanks for directing me to this bug, there is actually someone on that thread with the same mouse having the same problem however doesn't provide a fix so looks like i'm going to have to stick with it for awhile.
