I bought a bluetooth mouse (Logitech M590) hoping I could use it for both my Windows 10 laptop, and my Raspberry Pi 3 B. I've managed to connect it to Windows 10 without the dongle, but there is a significant time lag issue.

Then, I've tried to connect this mouse to my Pi. I am using the command line and bluetoothctl. It pairs and connects successfully, but when when I use the trust command, it shuts down bluetoothd, and I have to manually start it again with

sudo systemctl start bluetooth

Here's an image showing what happens when I use the command

trust xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx



I could use M590 with the following command.


open terminal window and type the following lines:

sudo hciconfig hci0 down

sudo hciconfig hci0 up


Pairing, connecting, trusting, please reboot.
