Ubuntu – Ubuntu 15.10, logitech mx anywhere mouse pairs but doesn’t do anything


When I used Ubuntu 15.04 with bluez5 from PPA installed, the mouse works. But after installing Ubuntu 15.04, the mouse doesn't work.

[bluetooth]# info XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
Name: MX Anywhere 2
Alias: MX Anywhere 2
Icon: input-mouse
Paired: yes
Trusted: yes
Blocked: no
Connected: yes
LegacyPairing: no

bluez5 have already included in ubuntu 15.10.
The mouse paring and connecting seem fine but the mouse doesn't do anything.

$dpkg -l | grep bluez
ii  bluez                                         5.35-0ubuntu2                              amd64        Bluetooth tools and daemons

  • In a related thread the user Tobi just updated his answer for Ubuntu 15.10, which worked for me perfectly: Logitech MX Anywhere 2 mouse pairs but doesn't do anything

    In fact the PIN-less pairing method of the MX Anywhere 2 is not very well implemented in Ubuntu 15.10. This commands have to be run to make the pairing work:

    hciconfig hci0 sspmode 1
    hciconfig hci0 down
    hciconfig hci0 up
