Cannot pair or remove bluetooth device
I just did a clean 12.04 install. My Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 used to pair just fine in 10.04. Not so now. When I run the bluetooth setup, the machine sees the mouse, but when I click to continue, it says that setup failed.
I should note that bluetooth otherwise works. I.e. I have paired with other devices no problem.
Here's the strange part, the (unpaired) mouse shows up (as disconnected) on the list of devices on the bluetooth drop-down menu. However, when I bring up bluetooth preferences, it is not listed there, so I cannot remove it.
So, this is a two-part question: 1. Any ideas to get my trusty mouse working again? 2. If not, how can I remove the device?
