I use a Genius Navigator 900 Pro with Fedora 9 and it works really well(not perfect, but an overall good experience), it just takes some time to instruct the Bluetooth manager to connect to and use the mouse as an input device and everything else is automatic.

And of course, since Fedora and Ubuntu uses pretty much the same Bluetooth drivers and software, you can easily do it on Ubuntu.

Oh and by the way, this on a laptop, a Compaq Presario V3005TU to be exact:).
