After reinstalling my mighty mouse software after accidentally uninstalling it, my mighty mouse will no longer pair with my mac mini.

What happens is that I follow the Bluetooth wizard for connecting a new device, select mouse as the device, then I get stuck on the screen that follows. The screen is the one where it says "Pairing with the mouse - This computer will use an empty passkey to pair with your device if possible". On that screen I get the spinning (device) icon and next to it "Connecting to <my name's> mouse". And it just stays on this screen until I close it.

I've tried installing it as "any device" but also run into the same problem. I've also tried setting up a new admin account to install it under but get the same problem.

Also, as soon as I switch the mouse on, the light starts flashing on the base of the mouse. I've also tried changing batteries to no avail.

Can someone help me?

Thanks

Paul

    Luckily I had a backed up copy of OS X which the mouse worked with, so I restored the copy (after moving my settings across, because the backup was a bit old), and my mouse was able to pair with my mac and start working again. I think I must have damaged the Bluetooth setup on my mac when I uninstalled the Applemousebluetoothintel package.
