This is a post dedicated to all of you guys who’d like to use Bluetooth HID (Human Interface Device), i.e. keyboard, mouse, etc. in Linux.
In my case the dongle is integrated in iMac (based on a Broadcom BCM2045B2 chipset) and the HID devices are the Apple Aluminium Bluetooth Keyboard and the Apple Mighty mouse, but the concepts here are still valid for other devices.
It takes me a while to have a clear picture of the concepts here, so I wish this guide will make a smooth path for you 😉
