I have Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on a brand new Dell XPS 13. I bought a Microsoft Arc Touch Bluetooth Mouse (the one without the dongle). My current problem is that my Bluetooth manager is not able to discover my mouse. All the other problems related to this question are dealing with a bug that, once paired, causes the mouse to not work properly. My problem is that I can't even pair it, because I can't see it.

I have the latest versions of
bluez: 5.37-0ubuntu5 blueman: 2.0.4-1ubuntu2
So, that rules out this solution: Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse doesn't working on Ubuntu 14.04
I have tried the solution here How do I use a Microsoft Designer Mouse with Ubuntu 15.10 to no avail.
When I run
hciconfig -a | grep "HCI", I see that my bluetooth version is 4.1 (0x7).
This rules out SOLVED - Microsoft Designer Mouse not connecting to Ubuntu 15.10.

This is because the solution itself is kind of vague and gives no clear instruction on how to do the steps that are listed. But again, this is for somebody who could see the mouse, but could not connect.
I don't know what else to try. I have tried discovering the device through Ubuntu's built-in Bluetooth manager as well as the
bluetoothctl command with
