I followed the guide here:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Bl … figuration
And configured my bluetooth mouse to automatically connect at startup and everything and tried after a reboot and all was good.
But now, there seems to be a problem and I'm not sure what happened.
After login, hciconfig says hci0 is DOWN
I have to do "hciconfig hci0 reset" to get it UP and then I have to connect to my mouse manually by scanning for its address and doing "hidd --connect" At this stage the mouse connects and works fine.
There looks to be some problem with bluez. I tried doing
dbus-send --system --type=method_call --print-reply --dest=org.bluez "/" org.bluez.Manager.ListAdapters
but I get:
Error org.freedesktop.systemd1.LoadFailed: Unit dbus-org.bluez.service failed to load: No such file or directory. See system logs and 'systemctl status dbus-org.bluez.service' for details.
and "systemctl status dbus-org.bluez.service" gives me:
Loaded: error (Reason: No such file or directory)
Active: inactive (dead)
I'm not sure what to do next, and what happened. This was all working a few days ago.
Here is my rc.conf:
DAEMONS=(dbus networkmanager bluetooth)
And I'm using the MATE desktop if this makes any difference.

Is bluez actually installed?
Yes, it is.
pacman -Q bluez
I did a system upgrade which upgraded to the newest kernel (3.6.6-1 ARCH) and I also tried reinstalling bluez but the problem is still there
