I just came back from a 4 year hiatus. In the last 2 weeks I have tried 4 or 5 distros, and decided to come back to arguably the best one. So I installed 2011.9 as dual boot with win xp which I must use for work. If i can get everything working in virtualbox I'll get rid of the dual boot.
Now for my problem, I can't get my bluetooth mouse working. The bluedevil pops up if I move the mouse and when I click "authorise and trust" it doesn't do anything. If i try to configure it, the add device does not see it even if it's in discovery mode.
I have searched the forums, but the only solution I found does not work. If someone can give me specific instructions to get it working I'd be very happy. I got my touchpad to work with Tex's tips.
But I have not found a soloution for my mouse.
System is as follows:
Lenovo Thinkpad T500, Intel 2.53 ghz dual core, 3 gigs DDR3 memory, Ati Hd3650 mobility, 750 gb Seagate 7200rpm hdd, intel 5300bgn wifi, bluetooth, and a Thinkpad bluetooth 3 button + scroll mouse.
