Comment 1 Bastien Nocera 2008-11-27 09:18:11 EST
You need to run the hid2hci service for this to work.
Comment 2 Manik Surtani 2008-11-27 11:14:09 EST
Running hid2hci worked, and I was able to detect the devices, but pairing failed.

The two devices are an Apple Mighty Mouse and an Apple Wireless Keyboard.  Both devices were detected, and their identifiers were visible as well in the bluez applet but the applet very plainly said that pairing failed when I select the device to set up.
