    bluetooth breaks after using mouse in other OS


    If I use my bluetooth apple Mighty Mouse in a LiveCD of Ubuntu, or in mac OSX, when I next boot linux from disk, the mouse won't connect to it. I do not know if it is something about the mouse that is changing or if it is something on the linux side. This has just happened to me again, and I am sure that the mouse was working before.

    i think any os doesn't change the hardware configuration of a component it may be a require driver for Linux or any file is corrupted during rebooting system .

    I've discovered that now the mouse won't even show up with hidd --search. Also, when running simple-agent, I am never asked to authorize the mouse (when i click it, which is how I connect it)

    edit2 when calling simple-agent with interface and device address parameters (simple-agent hci0 XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX), I get this error, "Creating device failed: org.bluez.Error.AlreadyExists: Bonding already exists"
