View Full Version : [ubuntu] Microsoft bluetooth adaptor

February 16th, 2011, 07:52 PM
Hi all,
i have an old Microsoft bluetooth mouse that i want to connect it to my ubuntu Lucid Lynx box, but with no luck! i have search around the web for some days now, but i havent got anything,

when i run lsusb
i get this:

Bus 002 Device 009: ID 045e:007e Microsoft Corp. Wireless Transceiver for Bluetooth

but if i go to System->Preferences-?bluetooth i get nothing. there is nothing on the list there.

your computer does not have any bluetooth adapters plugged in

I checked /var/lib/usbutils/usb.ids and there is a line with the mircrosoft bluetooth. So it is supported.

any help pls?

thanks a lot, ilias
