adding bluetooth mouse to ubuntu

As of ubuntu 8.04, the gnome bluetooth utility does not work by itself to enable a bluetooth mouse.

Here are the steps I had to go through to get my razer pro|click mobile working with my eee pc running eee ubuntu 8.04:
push the button on the bottom of the mouse

sudo hidd –search
Copy the mac address
sudo nano /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf

add this at the bottom, replacing MOUSE_ADDR with device mac address:

device MOUSE_ADDR {
name “Bluetooth Mouse”;

save and exit file

/etc/init.d/bluetooth restart

sudo hidd –search
