are we talking about freebsd or pc-bsd here? i'm confused :)
there were no changes in this area in freebsd. you still need to load
ng_ubt(4) to recognize local bluetooth device (i.e. bluetooth dongle
connected to your computer). usually its done via loader.conf, i.e.
put something like
devd(8) will start/stop bluetooth stack as soon as it detects
ng_ubt(4) device arrival/departure.
bthidd(8), hcsecd(8) etc. are bluetooth service daemons, and, those
needs to be started. usually one puts something like
into /etc/rc.conf to start bluetooth services.
assuming all of the above is in place, and, mouse was paired
previously, then it will work "out-of-the-box"

ng_ubt(4) driver for usb bluetooth devices
devd(8) responds to events and starts/stops bluetooth stack
> Also, I'd like to know how to make wheel working again.
can you please provide hid descriptor?
