Confimed problems on Lenovo T540p and Ubuntustudio 14.04.1
Confirmed problems on a Sitecom CN-524 (CSR8510 A10) Dongle

Problems explained shortly: device HP Z8000 connects correctly, at the mouse mouvement the pointer move crazy on the screen and desktop freeze (xfwm4)

The image refers to T540p paired and trusted.

I could not pair the Z8000 mouse to 12.04 LTS. Importatnt to mention, the desktop sometimes freezes during the pairing.

The bluez version is: 4.98-2ubuntu7.2.
The laptop is an HP Envy TouchSmart 15.

I was able to connect other Bluetoth mouses to the op. system except the reported HP Z8000 mouse.

Identical to bug description with ASUS X551CA and HP Z8000 usb mouse. The HP mouse shows up as "All types" not as mouse, paired successfully using automatic and custom pin 0000. Never shows as connected. Currently using an apple might mouse with no problems at all. Major difference here is I'm running Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon.

Similar to Bela Berczi (bberczi). This was on a new HP Envy 13t. It works fine with Windows 10, but will only connect as "All Types", and will not work as a mouse, on the 14.04.3 release.
