    1) Open /etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth.conf and add

    Code:
    HCID_ENABLE=true
    HIDD_ENABLE=true
    2) Start your bluetooth services

    Code:
    bash /etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth start
    3) Find out your mouses bd_addr

    Code:
    hcitool scan
    4) Load the hidp kernel module
    Code:
    modprobe -v hidp
    5) Now you can connect to the mouse

    Code:
    hidd --connect <bd_addr>
    6) Check your connection

    Code:
    hidd --show
    And you are done, hope this helps.

    To connect my mouse I only needed to do three steps.

    I had to edit my rc.bluetooth.conf the first time I booted backtrack (persistent USB).

    Then everytime I boot after that I have to do:
    bash /etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth start
    hidd --connect MY:MO:US:EM:AC:AD
    Is there a way to do the
    bash /etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth start
    hidd --connect MY:MO:US:EM:AC:AD
    automatically every time backtrack boots... its a real pain having to do that everytime, even with aliases its still an unecessary step.

    I have it setup like this in ubuntu but cannot figure out how to do the same thing in backtrack.

    put this into last line of /etc/fstab entry.on booting automatically it would be done for you by script or make a shell script and put these command in script and when u boot the system you need to run this script once.

    Thanks a lot secure_it. I knew it was something like that but I was getting tired of searching. I'll have to see if it works though... if the mouse isnt in discovery mode it has a hard time connecting (which I realize doesnt make sense because Ubuntu connects to my mouse no problem and I never have to put it in discovery mode)

    I added those two lines to /etc/fstab but the mouse does not connect on startup even if i have it in discovery mode. If I open a shell though, the last two commands in the history are those two commands...so it looks like it executes them but it still doesn't work. Is there a more standard way of doing this... like editing the bluetooth configuration file?

    most reliable solution is make a shell script with extension .sh like

    vi mouse.sh #put all commands you want to execute without typing again n #again,save and close with :wq

    chmod +x #make it executable

    sh mouse.sh or ./mouse #everytime when you run pc simply run this #script with one command shot
