Make a local udev rule gksudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/60-bluetooth-hid2hci.rules

And enter the following

http://paste.ubuntu.com/10129429/plain/ copy from paste then save, exit gedit, reboot

It should work from the bug report https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/bluez/+bug/1315290

A found an incorrect attribute in the first paste compared to your device, use the same gksudo command and replace the entire file with the plain text version of http://paste.ubuntu.com/10146840/ Line 11 at the end needed to be ATTRS{bmAttributes}=="e0", \ instead of =="c0",\

You could just change the c to an e, save, exit, reboot
