Fedora Icon[FIXED] The Gnome Bluetooth GUI via settings FAILS
to pair with my HP Bluetooth Laser Mobile Mouse. This has not worked in
the gui bluetooth settings app for a few versions (maybe F19).The
problem is that the mouse does NOT have a pair code, and the it won't
pair with '0000' or '1234'.

I figured out to manually pair it from the commandline without a pairing code!

use bluetoothctl on the commandline

use the following commands to connect to the MAC address:

[bluetooth]# scan on
Discovery started
[CHG] Controller F4:B7:E2:F9:9F:1F Discovering: yes
[NEW] Device 00:0F:F6:6D:40:C6 HP Bluetooth Laser Mobile Mouse

[bluetooth]# connect 00:0F:F6:6D:40:C6
Attempting to connect to 00:0F:F6:6D:40:C6
[CHG] Device 00:0F:F6:6D:40:C6 Connected: yes
[CHG] Device 00:0F:F6:6D:40:C6 Modalias: usb:v0D62p0558d0118
[CHG] Device 00:0F:F6:6D:40:C6 UUIDs: 00001000-0000-1000-8000-00805f9b34fb
[CHG] Device 00:0F:F6:6D:40:C6 UUIDs: 00001124-0000-1000-8000-00805f9b34fb
[CHG] Device 00:0F:F6:6D:40:C6 UUIDs: 00001200-0000-1000-8000-00805f9b34fb
Connection successful

If any bluez errors show up,
restart the service:

systemctl restart bluetooth.service
