Bluetooth mouse stopped working on Fedora 18
 
This one has me really confused.. I bought a new Bluetooth mouse today and set it up in Fedora 18 KDE. Worked perfectly, it even recognized what kind of mouse it was. I then went to eat dinner, and when I got back to my computer, it had lost the connection to the mouse. Trying to reconnect just timed out. If I press the buttons or move the mouse, the Bluetooth icon flashes with a small icon of some kind very briefly, which suggests to me that there's something happening. However, it simply wouldn't connect.

I tried rebooting, turning the mouse off, even removing the batteries, all to no avail. Last I tried removing the device to re-add it, and now it can't even find it when it scans. Even more strange, it also cannot find my phone when I tried that to see where the heck the problem is.

So, I see something's going on, but I have no idea where to begin fixing this. I find it really strange that it worked perfectly, and then once it lost connection decided that Bluetooth is for sissies and real men should only shout 0's and 1's into the microphone. Any ideas?

Hi:

I'm not the genius here but maybe all you need is an update.
Try running:
Code:

yum update kde-bluetooth
Here are a few articles that may help:

In this case for this member it is a bug; sorry for the bad news.

Try waking up the device (by editing) like this member did with his /proc/acpi/wakeup
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...up-4175440255/

Other than that the only other thing I know to try would be to click on your bluethooth icon and set up a new device. Hope this helps

Found a few more possibilities and or troubleshooting techniques-

I *(think)* this just might be a bug.
If I find anything useful over the next few days I'll post it for you.
