I have a bluetooth mouse ("A4TECH BT-630") and a small laptop with a tiny bluetooth module connected via USB. I'd been using Lubuntu Oneiric for 2 years. My mouse worked flawlessly (I used blueman to set up connection: no pairing, only connect to pointing service). Recently I decided to check out some modern ubuntu-based OS. So I installed Ubuntu Precise (of course, I use blueman as a graphical front-end with same configuration). I turn on my machine, then I log in, after that I switch on my mouse (there is an on/off switch on the bottom of the mouse). Mouse connects, the red light on the bottom turns on, in dmesg I see the following:

[ 2041.034103] input: BlueTooth Mouse as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.1/usb3/3-1/3-1:1.0/bluetooth/hci0/hci0:43/input11
[ 2041.036008] generic-bluetooth 0005:09DA:80F0.0003: input,hidraw0: BLUETOOTH HID v0.1e Keyboard [BlueTooth Mouse] on 00:83:15:39:AC:D4

but the pointer doesn't move. Then I switch the mouse off, switch it on again (red light appears, the same strings in dmesg are printed) and everything works fine. Every time I start my machine I face this problem. It also appears periodically when I try to "wake" my mouse. Yesterday I installed Linux Mint Maya Mate (12.04 based distribution). The problem remained. Okay, the kernel is 3.2.x. In Oneiric it was 3.0.x . So I downloaded 3.0.9 compat-wireless, 3.0.x headers and compiled "btinstall" target. This made no changes. When I turn on my machine, I can't make pointer move for a first time. And it's quite annoying. So... maybe someone can help me? P.S. I also tried to configure the mouse using this instruction: Arch: bluetooth mouse configuration No changes.
