I just got a bluetooth mouse (Microsoft Designer) and it works for a few minutes but then it'll stop and the following is in dmesg:
Bluetooth: hci0: Setting Intel event mask failed (-16)
Any idea how to fix that?
I've also got bluetooth issues with both the mouse as well as iphone bluetooth hotspot. Happens under all kernel versions I tried.
For a practical answer: you can give your bluetooth controller a kick using: sudo hciconfig hci0 reset .
There seem to me to be driver issues, even in the developer edition.
Thing have only been getting worse in the latest kernels.
4.6.3 I use now, but even the hcitool trick doesn't help any longer.
Bluetooth on XPS skylake seems quite broken?
I have the same problem. The mouse stops working after a while and if I turn off and on the bluetooth indicator everything start working again. Then the mouse will stop moving again and so on.
Since it is able to work it seems a solvable issue to me, but I have no idea how to fix it
Could people with this issue please add to https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/bluez/+bug/1651433 ? Especially if you're running our OEM image, specify the Ubuntu version.
