I have 64 bit 11.10 on an Asus UX31 (Zenbook). As I can't use the built in touchpad I decided to get a Bluetooth mouse to use instead of a wired one (only 2 usb ports).

The problem is that when I scan for the mouse (MS Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000) nothing is recognized. I have used both the Bluetooth manager and command line "hcitool scan". The Bluetooth adapter is built-in and shows up in the app "Blue-who" as hci0(Zen-0) address 74:2F:CC:1E:C2 but no mouse. It also failed to pick up a keyboard and a cellphone.

When I boot into Windows the mouse is detected and works.

I've tried to find an online answer without success. Any help would be appreciated.
