I'm trying to connect a Microsoft Bluetooth Mobile Mouse 3600 in Ubuntu 15.10.
I first tried connecting through
unity-control-center. This would discover the device, but fail to connect every time. On further research, it seems it's not possible to connect to a LE (low energy) device this way.
So I tried it with CLI tools. I can get this far:
$ sudo hcitool lescan LE Scan ... F2:C2:08:8A:DD:10 BluetoothMouse3600 F2:C2:08:8A:DD:10 (unknown) sudo gatttool -I [ ][LE]> connect F2:C2:08:8A:DD:10 random Attempting to connect to F2:C2:08:8A:DD:10 Connection successful [F2:C2:08:8A:DD:10][LE]>
So it seems the mouse is connected. However, it does not seem to be working as a mouse, at least when I move it, the pointer does not move. Also,
hcidump does not show any activity when I move the mouse.
Is there something more I need to do to get it recognized as a mouse? Any more troubleshooting steps I might take?
