I'm suspecting this isn't going to work OOTB currently on karmic, but
using a karmic A2 disk, you should be able to do a test that might work
to switch the modes.

So follow these steps:
1) Bootup a karmic alpha2 disk.  You don't have to install it, just boot up it.
2) Look at the output of lsusb
# lsusb
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 05ca:18a1 Ricoh Co., Ltd 
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
 a) The column that shows the two 4 digit pairs is what we are looking at.  Take note of BOTH of the pairs that are there
     for the keyboard and mouse

3) Run this command with those pairs inserted.  The first of 4 digit
pair is the VENDOR.  The second is the PRODUCT:

$ sudo hid2hci --method dell -v VENDOR -p PRODUCT --mode hci

So if I was trying to run the command on my Ricoh device (which wouldn't
do anything), i'd run:

$ sudo hid2hci --method dell -v 05ca -p 18a1 --mode hci

4) To check if that command works, run lsusb again and check for a new
bluetooth radio device. If it exists please post it in this bug and this
can be fixed OOTB for you in a later karmic alpha.

5) If that command doesn't work, try the other pair and repeat step 4.
