Description Hans de Goede 2011-08-27 16:44:06 EDT
After upgrading to Fedora 16 my bluetooth mouse stopped working, even after it was sucessfully
paired. Doing cat /dev/input/mouse2 (which is the bluetooth mouse) does show events getting generated, but the pointer does not move in X.

I've managed to pin this down to:

Doing udevadm info --path=... --query=all on both working and non working mouse devices I found that the bluetooth mouse was missing:

Commenting the following line in /lib/udev/rules.d/60-persistent-input.rules :
SUBSYSTEMS=="bluetooth", GOTO="persistent_input_end"

Makes these env variables get set for the bluetooth mouse and make it work under X again.
