So I've got an interesting issue. I cannot use any sort of wireless mouse on my Gentoo install. I can, however, use my trackpad.

I connect my bluetooth mouse, for example, which has worked previously with this install, and I end up not being able to use it. It pairs successfully, and it appears to be connected (indicator shows), and the mouse acts as if it's connected, but I cannot use it for some reason.

I then went out and got a USB mouse, and that didn't work either.

Before connecting the mouse, I see the following in
Code:
/dev/input
:

Code:
tuxbox input # ls
by-id    event1   event12  event2  event5  event8  mouse0
by-path  event10  event13  event3  event6  event9
event0   event11  event14  event4  event7  mice


Once connected, I see the same thing.

Also, here's a relevant section of my dmesg.

Code:
[   11.928263] usbcore: registered new interface driver btusb
[   11.938727] [drm] Initialized drm 1.1.0 20060810
[   11.942737] Bluetooth: hci0: read Intel version: 370710010002030d4f
[   11.942802] Bluetooth: hci0: Intel device is already patched. patch num: 4f


Anybody have any ideas as to what I did? I was messing with the kernel config (to shrink the amount of drivers) and likely took out an important one. But I'm baffled as to which one that would be...

Thanks,
-Hunter A.

probably some sort of HID
CONFIG_BT_HIDP=m
CONFIG_HID=y
CONFIG_HIDRAW=y
CONFIG_HID_GENERIC=y
CONFIG_HID_SENSOR_HUB=m
CONFIG_USB_HID=m
CONFIG_USB_HIDDEV=y

I'd try looking for it there. Maybe some more specific one, like
CONFIG_HID_A4TECH=y
CONFIG_HID_APPLE=y
or anything that matches your mouse.

Yup! that did the trick. The issue was CONFIG_BT_HIDP.
I had:

Code:
CONFIG_BT_HIDP=y


But I needed it to be a module.

Code:
CONFIG_BT_HIDP=m
