There is some weird issues with bluetooth on macbook pro 8,1. I've seen people saying its working out of the box but it doesnt seem to work at all. hcitool scan as well as blueman return no results even when have 3-4 visible devices waiting to be found.

Now if i try to scan from the device like smart phone i can see the ubuntu machine, I can even pair it (it asks to confirm that the pin codes are correct) but right after connection is established it gets terminated.

I can pair with a Nexus 7, but not with a Logitech MX900 mouse. This mouse pairs nicely with nexus 7. –  philcolbourn Dec 19 '12 at 8:49
