View Full Version : [all variants] Sharing bluetooth mouse between Windows and Ubuntu

April 26th, 2008, 08:09 PM

I have a Mac mighty mouse which I have been using under Windows.

I want to switch to Ubuntu, but because games don't really work under Ubuntu, I have to stick with windows for a while for gaming.

I would really like to be able to share the mouse between Ubuntu and Windows so that I don't have to pair up every time I boot into the other operating system. Actually not being able to do this slows down my switch considerably, because I keep booting into Windows out of convinience. There should be a way to extract the link key from windows and register it under linux... I suppose that is a kind of a hack, but maybe there are better ways?

Asus F3SV
Mighty mouse

Windows XP: Toshiba Bluetooth manager

(I don't think anything else is of interest)

Thanks for your help,
