    New question following post
    Logitech MX Anywhere 2 mouse pairs but doesn't do anything

    Pairing and connecting via built-in bluetooth manager and blueman works.
    also via commandline:

    bluetoothctl
    

    Output see below.

    [MX Anywhere 2]# info DE:CE:68:71:F9:97
    Device DE:CE:68:71:F9:97
        Name: MX Anywhere 2

        UUID: Vendor specific           (00010000-0000-1000-8000-011f2000046d)
        Modalias: usb:v046DpB013d0007
    [MX Anywhere 2]# paired-devices 
    Device DE:CE:68:71:F9:97 MX Anywhere 2
    

    What does not work is input, as in “the mouse doesn’t move the cursor”

    Accepted AnswerAnswer

    Hope this helps…. My device is a Surface Edition Bluetooth LE Arc Touch Mouse made by Microsoft (Obvious Much lol)

    Couldn’t get it to connect with every Distro I’ve tried over the past year… Until OpenSuse Leap. Then I knew it was possible! But I like Ubuntu (I know I know)

    Came across this thread and had everything looking exactly like your read out shows:

    Name: Arc Touch Mouse SE
    Alias: Arc Touch Mouse SE
    Appearance: 0x03c2
     Icon: input-mouse
     Paired: yes  
     Trusted: yes
     Blocked: no
    Connected: yes
    LegacyPairing: no 
    

    And Still NOTHING! No movement even though its clearly listed as paired, trusted, unblocked, and connected! I was about to give up for good but decided to try one last thing..

    I deleted the device using “remove” and issued the following commands in this exact order which resulted in my device working! After a year of trying to find a way.

    [bluetooth]# power off
    [bluetooth]# power on
    [bluetooth]# scan on
    [bluetooth]# connect XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
    [Arc Touch Mouse SE]# trust
    [Arc Touch Mouse SE]# connect XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
    [Arc Touch Mouse SE]# pair
    [Arc Touch Mouse SE]# unblock
    [Arc Touch Mouse SE]# power off
    [bluetooth]# power on
    

    So I can confirm that Ubuntu 16.04 does indeed support Bluetooth LE devices
