I run Fedora 23 (+ Gnome 3.18) on a Dell XPS 13 notebook (model 2015, bios A07). I have two bluetooth mice: a Microsoft mouse and a Dell mouse. I have paired both. The Microsoft mouse is working fine and it was detected as a "Mouse" (see screenshot). The Dell mouse, however, was detected as "All Types" (see screenshot) and sometimes it connects but the mouse pointer does not move, i.e., it does not work at all.

Screenshot MS:

Screenshot Dell:

(Notice the grayed out "Connection" button in the latter.)

I have also tried to connect manually using bluetoothctl (via terminal) but the end result was the same. Suggestions are welcome.
