OpenSUSE Hardware :: Cannot Setup The Bluetooth Mouse
May 18, 2010
I've just set up dual boot Win 7 with openSUSE 11.2 but unfortunately I have run into a couple of problems. One of them is that I cannot set up my Bluetooth mouse, which works under windows.
I am typing this from Windows right now (wireless is not working either) so I cannot reproduce the exact steps but anyways, when I try to add a new Bluetooth device it first finds my mouse, and keeps searching, and then removes the mouse from the list, and keeps searching, then it finds it again, ... and it goes endlessly. If I select mouse on the list and click forward on the next screen I get an error saying that the mouse was not set up.
If I use my bluetooth apple Mighty Mouse in a LiveCD of Ubuntu, or in mac OSX, when I next boot linux from disk, the mouse won't connect to it. I do not know if it is something about the mouse that is changing or if it is something on the linux side. This has just happened to me again, and I am sure that the mouse was working before.
I have an issue with a bluetooth mouse. The mouse connects with the pc normally, and the bluetooth manager reports that the bluetooth device sends data. However, the mouse does not move the pointer, or seems to do any kind of effect on the pc.
I've just upgraded my Ubuntu installation to 11.04 and my bluetooth mouse (Logitech Bluetooth Laser Travel Mouse) is not correctly recognized at start-up. Every time I restart my computer I have to run the following commands in a terminal
sudo killall bluetoothd sudo bluetoothd
and then remove and set up the bluetooth mouse (using an auxiliary USB mouse, of course ) through the bluetooth preferences dialogue.how to carry out the remove/set-up process using a non-interactive shell script?
I'm running Debian squeeze on a Fujitsu Lifebook AH550 under kernel revision 2.6.37. For the most part, everything is good, but I can't get my Verbatim Bluetooth mouse (model 96991) to work. It's fine with the Debian 2.6.32 kernel, so I know that the hardware is recognized and any required configuration files are in place. I've evidently missed some kernel configuration parameter, unless perhaps some driver has changed since 2.6.32 which renders my mouse incompatible.If I run bluetooth-properties, I can see that a mouse is configured. I've tried removing that device and adding a new device. The mouse is found immediately, and, according to the dialog, is configured successfully.
I have bluetoothd, hidd, and bluez-simple-agent running. I click my mouse, and bluez-simple-agent never asks to authenticate or for a PIN. Before, bluez was working for me. It broke when I paired my mouse to a LiveCD session of Ubuntu Lucid Lynx.using bluez 4.71
I have a laptop. . .Dell 1150. Ubuntu installed, bluetooth device installed and my bluetooth keyboard and mouse works like a charm. I decided to load up my same exact Ibuntu on my desktop, use the same keyboard on it, and the mouse too. I tested it on the laptop, just in case it would not work in Ibuntu, and I didn't want to wipe out my Windows XP on my desktop and find out Ibuntu would not work on it with a wireless keyboard. Since it worked very well with my laptop, I figured it would work just as good with my desktop. I wiped my desktop out, and installed Ibuntu. Everything worked fantastic. Until I tried to install the bluetooth.
When I plug in my Bluetooth device, Ibuntu finds it and asks to set up your device. I attempt to set up my keyboard/mouse combo and it asks for a 6 digit code (like it is supposed to). I enter the code and press enter. From here, the problem starts. Ubuntu "claims" to connect to the keyboard, shows it connected, but my keyboard does not work at all. Neither does the mouse that is built into the keyboard. I type and nothing happens. This also brings up (sometimes) another message that says my keyboard is trying to connect to the bluetooth device please enter keyboard PIN. Well.
I can't enter anything, because the keyboard does not work! The mouse does not work! I can (without any problems) disconnect and connect to my laptop, but I can't do this to my desktop. Both are dell units. Desktop is about 3 years old, laptop is about 8 years old. Both running Ubuntu, the latest version. Both recognize the bluetooth transceiver. I have tried different USB ports on the desktop with no avail. I would really like to use my desktop as a unit to my TV with a wireless keyboard, not my laptop. It is much faster, more memory, and I can use the TV as a monitor.
I was in 2.6.38.-2-amd64 and it was upgraded to 2.6.39-2-amd64. After the upgrade, every reboot disables the bluetooth mouse. There is a message from the panel with a bluetooth icon Bluetooth Device Authorization request from Logitec mouse... check authorization
I push the buttons on my mouse and the button on the dongle to try and get them to pair, but, the dongle does not work. It is not scanning when I push the connect button.I unplug the usb dongle, and plug it in again, and this time I am able to pair them, and the mouse works. But, I have to do this every time I reboot which is a pain. I found that in the previous kernel, The Bloothtooh package is 4.91-1, but it has been upgrade to 4.91-2. So, this is creating the problem.
After upgrading F14 -> F15 bluetooth (mouse/keyboard) are not working. With F14 there was no problems.

I tried to do a clean install of Ubuntu 10.04, but when I get to the screen if I want to test or install Ubuntu, the keyboard and mouse (bluetooth) don't work. I tried to resync the peripherals, I disconnected usb connector base of the tower and putting it back but nothing works for me. I have a Logitech Desktop MX 5000 (Bluetooth).
I'm working with Ubuntu 10.04 x64 + Asus 1201N + Media-Tech MD1083 RELOADED bluetooth mouse. Gnome Bluetooth Applet has setup mouse perfectly except scrolling. Even back&forward buttons seem to work fine but the scroll wheel does not work at all.
In "xev" I can see that scrolling does not produce any events.
Im using a Samsung R420/R470 laptop with Broadcom bluetooth and a Prolink PMO624B mouse.My mouse works when I add it as a new device, but if I off the mouse and on it again, the mouse does not auto connect. I have to press and hold the connection button under the mouse and reconnect to the mouse.The mouse says that it is linux compatible, so I guess its a problem with my bluetooth drivers.
I've paired a bluetooth keyboard and mouse with my machine using the Gnome bluetooth wizard and the keyboard and mouse work fine. Then, if I let the computer sit for a few hours and then try to use the keyboard or mouse, nothing happens. When paired with my windows machine, and I start using the keyboard and mouse after a hour or two, the keyboard takes a second or two to start working again. I suspect that it turns itself off, and then has to reconnect, and that in Linux, the reconnection isn't working properly. I've found other instances on the forums of people with the same symptoms, but never any clear answers. Does anyone know what's going on?
I've installed CentOS 5.6 to my laptop, primarily to use some simulation programs. With much help of google I'm getting my hardware and software to work quite well, but I still have some troubles.My first problem is my Synaptics-Touchpad. It is extremely sensitive and I am not able to scroll. Is there any application which allows me to configure it properly? Before CentOS, I've tried openSUSE 11.4, where there was an application especially for configuring synaptics touchpad (dont't remember the name though). In general, the "feeling" of the touchpad was way much better under openSUSE, but I can't define that properly. I have a bluetooth mouse (Dicota Blue Light) conntected to my laptop, which is working fine except for the scroll wheel, which doesn't work at all. How can I activate it?
I recently upgraded this machine from Ubuntu Maverick 10.10 to Debian Squeeze, x86_64, by wiping the root partition (I kept my backup and my home partitions). Everything has gone OK except this: for whatever reason I cannot pair my Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 with this machine any longer. In bluetooth-applet I can see the mouse when I go to pair it with the machine, but it simply times out and the pairing fails.
The target mouse definitely used to work in Ubuntu, so I doubt it's a problem in the physical layer. I tried another Bluetooth mouse (a Rocketfish/BestBuy POS), and it doesn't pair either. The Microsoft mouse I would like to use pairs just fine with my Debian squeeze laptop, but they're not using identical Bluetooth adapters as far as I can tell. lsusb reports that I've got a Broadcom BCM2210 in my workstation (the subject of this post), and lsusb on my laptop reports some kind of Broadcom Bluetooth adapter, but doesn't report its chipset.I'd really like to stay on squeeze if possible, but my googling for this has only led me to old documentation, or stuff that applies to wheezy or sid.
i'm using a logitech dinovo keyboard/mouse and was trying to figure out if the device is still in boot mode. I don't see the usb hub listed when i hciconfig and i although the udev rules appear to hid2hci, i cant seem to figure out how in the heck i could be paired when i've never went through the process.. lsusb also shows "boot interface subclass" which im guessing means its in bootmode? Im obviously concerned about this because bootmode isnt encrypted.
I have an ASUS Zenbook UX31E with Debian testing and LXDE as a Desktop environment. I have a Logitech T630 Mouse that I connect through Bluetooth. When the mouse is paired I can use it properly but I get random keys typed in my desktop such as "1", "2" or "/".I am a regular user of Debian, and I have being using the system for several years now even worked as sysadmin for sometime. However I do not have much knowledge about Bluetooth devices management. I found no information on this issue on the internet and I do not know where too look for more info on my own system. Here is some info I got:
I am using Ubuntu 10.04 on a laptop with a Synaptics touchpad. While testing an install of Bluetooth drivers I booted my computer into recovery mode so I could find out if Bluetooth worked before networking was installed. The system reconfigured the graphics to low VGA which disabled the mouse. I rebooted (normal startup) uninstalled the bluetooth drivers, but my mouse still won't work. The mouse pointer appears in the middle of the computer screen, and stays there.Enabling mouse keys support enables me to move the mouse by holding the Function key and pressing numpad characters,t this is only a temporary solution.
I just bought a pair of Samsung SBH500 headphones and a USB Bluetooth dongle. I was able to connect my headphones with no problems but I wanted to set them up to play music. I found this website: [URL]. I got to this command:
Code: $ sudo hciconfig hci0 voice 0x0060
and got this error message
Code: Can't write voice setting on hci0: Connection timed out (110)
I am very new to linux and I have been given a school project that involves getting my windows pc talking to a linux single board computer that I have. It can be found here. [URL]. I have two bluetooth usb dongles, one to plug into my pc and one to plug into my linux board, I know that both work as I have tried talking to them both using my mobile/cell phone. Also when I plug the dongle into my linux board it recognizes something has been plugged in. However I am unsure where to go from here. I have tried "searching" for the device using my windows pc, but it will only find my cell phone and not my linux board. I also tried mounting it similar to how i would mount a usb drive e.g. mount dev/sda etc. How to setup the linux board for bluetooth communications?
Just picked up a Microsoft Designer Bluetooth Mouse.Whenever I try to pair it, my system hangs and I have to hard power it down. The mouse is Bluetooth 4.0, but my Bluetooth connectivity is provided by my Intel Wireless 3160 card which does support Bluetooth 4.0.I'm using Blueman as a front end, and one other thing of note is that it shows as "Unknown" after a scan.If I need to return it, I need to return it, but it seems like a good mouse and I'd like to keep it if I can make it work.
I've took this out of syslog: Code: Select allAug 1 14:58:04 Noah-LEMUR kernel: [ 317.772054] BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000398 Aug 1 14:58:04 Noah-LEMUR kernel: [ 317.772090] IP: [<ffffffff81569f7e>] mutex_lock+0xe/0x30 Aug 1 14:58:04 Noah-LEMUR kernel: [ 317.772113] PGD 0 Aug 1 14:58:04 Noah-LEMUR kernel: [ 317.772123] Oops: 0002 [#1] SMP
I used a live CD burned onto a DVD-RW and it booted up and worked great. So I installed it using the entire hard drive, Ran Update manager, enabled the driver for the wifi card. Before I was using 10.5 with all recent updates done. A few things don't work. It fails whenever I try to connect my Bluetooth mouse and keyboard, CD drive doesn't mount anything, I thought it would bring up the restricted nvidia driver but it doesn't so the video is slow and sketchy.
I'm running Fedora 11 (same problem on my 32 and 64bit systems), I have Logitech bluetooth mice and keyboards hooked up to both of my systems. Occasionally, one of my keyboards stops responding and I simply open up the Bluetooth Preferences window, delete the keyboard and then set it up again. However, now when I click the Setup New Device button, nothing happens! This is happening on two seperate systems. Am I to believe this is the result of a bad update? I've checked my yum log and it hasen't updated any bluetooth packages for a few weeks now and this just started the other day. Any ideas what could be wrong?
