Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000

Postby thomas_kuko » Fri Jun 26, 2009 5:20 am

Ahoha,
I have a problem with my mouse. I have "Bluetooth Applet 1.8" and this program found my mouse but doesn't paired. I found this http://blog.chinthaka.org/2008/09/getting-microsoft-bluetooth-mouse.html but is not working. Does anybody have any idea how to fix it?! I am a new member of Linux family and I low it pretty much . Please help me.
I have Linux Mint - 7.

Thx a lot!

You are not forgotten - but I simply don't know enough about Bluetooth to find a solution easily - I have to add this to my list and come back
I think the way Bluetooth is handled has changed since that link was written
Edit - I don't know enough about Bluetooth......

Ok I have searched a bit
Bluetooth changed drastically between Elyssa and Felicia (Hardy and Intrepid) so solutions for Hardy and older are less likely to work
Here's a solution for Intrepid
Here's an older blog post but the comments are useful
A possible solution
