It was working flawlessly when I first installed Fedora26 than after a reboot the mouse won't reconnect or even display. I removed the mouse through the GUI to try to add it again and it doesn't show up when searching for it.

Logitech Bluetooth Mouse M557

Asus G750J laptop

This is a silly question, but did you press the connect button in the bottom of the mouse and made sure the blue lid is blinking before you search it on Fedora?

@MrRolling the mouse a wireless peripheral, what does lspci has to do with it?

hehe Yeah I've done that I'm able to connect/use it from my android phone, my phone won't even show up when searching for bluetooth devices. I get my neighbors devices. lol

Yeah, it's better to rule out simple mistake, it see something is off with your bluetooth stack. When I get similar problem I usually restart the bluetooth service (sudo systemctl restart bluetooth.service) and if fails restart the PC. Try these first.

Next, do hcitool scan on terminal does the mouse shows up?

If yes, do bluetoothctl and give us the output so we can what's the state (is it paired, connected, or nothing at all)

Once you are on bluetoothctl prompt (the console end with '#') you might want to try pair <mouse mac addr> followed by connect <mouse mac addr>
