Bluetooth mouse wont connect after reboot - Ubuntu 18.04

`Had this problem earlier today. Could reconnect the mouse by removing the Bluetooth connection and re-doing it, but that should not be required.

Turns out that there is a trust issue with Bluetooth, luckily, someone has already figured out the fix, which is easiest to do via the command line. Its all documented here - https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2390542 & the original here - http://mielke.cc/brltty/doc/Bluetooth.html#for-bluetooth-version-5.

Weirdly, I didn't have the same issue with bluetooth headphones, only with the mouse.

Ubuntu winbind not working?

Have you been trying to get winbind working on Ubuntu, and not having any luck? After the usual:

 

sudo apt-get install winbind

 

You also need to install libnss-winbind as well:

 

sudo apt-get install libnss-winbind

 

That should get it working, when combined with the change of the hosts: line in /etc/nsswitch.conf from:

 

hosts: files dns

 

to

 

hosts: files dns wins

 

And presto, it should start working.
