Obviously it can't find your bluetooth devices. Are they switched on and close enough to the system when you boot it?

Hi!
sorry, i haven't had time to post/read.

Well, your conclusion would be correct if it weren't for the fact that my bluetooth device is inside my laptop and my mouse sits just 15-20cm away.

I tried this sequence /etc/init.d/bluetooth restart because you suggested it, but I don't have any problems pairing my laptop and mouse when I do it manually with the commands I posted earlier.

What I can tell you is that in my GNOME panel, i've got the Bluetooth icon which is the GNOME Bluetooth applet 0.27 and when i execute the command to restart bluetooth service, I get a bubble on screen telling me that my laptop bluetooth device has been made connectable.
After that, I cannot connect my mouse through this applet (so it's really useless), I have to do it with hcitool and hidd commands.

I don't know why this happens, so I'd add the commands to /etc/rc.local.

Well, I tried, but no luck.
I used hcitool and hidd in /etc/rc.local but nothing... Is this the correct file to use for Debian distro? I'm not really sure.

I'd try the full paths for hcitool and hidd in /etc/rc.local.

Great! It worked.
OK, thanks for the helpful hints and all assistance Falko.
I'm still a bit unsatisfied, I must admit. I don't like to use rc.local to solve problems, considering Debian/Linux provides Bluetooth software and drivers to configure it all...
Anyway, thanks a lot!
