I am trying to connect a magic mouse to my Mint 14 machine but cannot seem to get it to connect.
I open the bluetooth settings, turn on the magic mouse, click on the + button in the bluetooth preferences window, and wait for a bit to see if anything happens. After I click the mouse, the device does in fact get detected and is reflected by a popup from the notification center that says my mouse is asking for the PIN. This box usually disappears way too fast and even if I manage to get the PIN in the box "0000", it doesn't seem to make a difference. Also, this box appears twice in succession.
I found the same notification available in the little tray applet but that thing has the same problem: I try to insert the PIN but it just disappears with no affect. Any ideas?
