Unfinished Sofware's Blog

So, I was trying out Kubuntu Maevrick and found out that my bluetooth mouse did not work anymore as it previously did with Jaunty…

The search for the holy grail was not that easy, many posts said to get the source and build it yourself…

hmm.... this is a fresh install… I don’t want to start trashing it already.... ;)

Well, there’s a solution, add the backports to your sources.list:

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu maverick-backports universe
deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu maverick-backport universe

Update your packages list:

sudo apt-get update

Get the new bluedevil, the one which will handle null pin devices like my mouse:

sudo apt-get upgrade

Restart bluetooth:

sudo /etc/init.d/bluetooth restart

Now, adding a new device will work as suposed ;)
