Ubuntu 17.10 not detecting bluetooth mouse

My Logitech bluetooth mouse worked in 17.04 until I did a fresh install of 17.10 on my Dell Inspiron, now it doesn’t see it. Bluetooth is on and sees my iPhone.

Here is Solutions:

We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first solution because it is tested & true solution that will 100% work for you.

Solution 1

Had the same problem after upgrade to 17.10.
For my intel bluetooth adapter disabling bt_coex_active solved it.

It uses iwlwifi so adding the text above in /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi.conf disables it, you can do it in one line:

echo "options iwlwifi bt_coex_active=0"|sudo tee --append /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi.conf

then you should restart your computer or you can reload your wifi modules. Again in one line:

sudo rmmod iwlmvm iwlwifi && sudo modprobe iwlmvm

Note: Use and implement solution 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
