I don't have a bluetooth device, but did try to assist a beginner who had his
mouse on one.
After a lot of frustration, it turned out that the bluetooth drivers were a
total furphy. The device appeared to Linux as a USB device - the bluetooth
protocol was totally contained between the dongle and whatever device that
was actually controlling.
You probably ought to be looking for USB devices instead.
