Hi all,

I've done something really stupid I think.

Initially my Apple magic trackpad was working fine apart from the fact it kept disconnecting me after about 1-2 seconds of no use.
I then read a few guides that I have none of the commands needed to troubleshoot bluetooth (bluetoothctl, hciconfig hcitul etc....).

So I decided to run emerge net-wireless/bluez after which my magic trackpad ceased to work.

I tried to remove the package which has made no difference.

I am a bit lost, as I don't understand how it was working at all if I had no bluetooth software installed unless it already had an older version installed, but then I should of had some tools available I presume.

So many questions... :)

Any ideas?

should probably mention that the magic trackpad works fine in OSX.
