I figured out this problem with using bluetooth manager (blueman).You can install blueman if you have this problem.

If you are using bluez, this solution might help you as well as it helped me:

Basically you need to put your mouse in discoverable mode and then run the following commands in the console:

hcitool scan
bluez-simple-agent hci0 XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
bluez-test-device trusted XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX yes
bluez-test-input connect XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX

Where XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX is your mouse Bluetooth MAC address as given by hcitool scan.
