I just got a generic bluetooth mouse off ebay and it works great in XP
but I can't connect in Gnome because the bluetooth tool REQUIRES a PIN?!
The mouse doesn't have a PIN at all... not 0000, not 1234, not anything.
why do you force a pin anyways?! i tried "use fixed pin code" > "custom
pin code" but it won't let me leave it blank! ugh.
