http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi. I have a Dell Studio 1715 laptop, which comes with bluetooth, webcam, fingerprint reader, everything. I enjoyed ubuntu a lot in this laptop.... until I met this problem. I bought a bluetooth laser mouse, which didn't work for me before. Can't remember the brand... now it happens all over again with a brand new mouse, so it can't be the mouse itself. When I connect the mouse in windows vista is working like a champion.... man, it works flawlessly. but when I try to connect the same mouse in the same laptop in ubuntu...... boooom, doesn't connect in ubuntu, and in windows either! I have to reinstall the driver in windows and attach it again so that I can use it in windows. in ubuntu I have no clue what happened or what to do. The mouse is a microsoft bluetooth laser mouse 5000 recently bought. This is the second bluetooth mouse I tried to connect in ubuntu, and I am not excited to try it again. by the way, the trackpad that comes built in the laptops is horrible. Can't use the laptop with it. Any suggestions? (Hardware)
