    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.
