From my experience, kbluetooth4 is rather useless (many bugs, no
features, virtually no active development). I've been using blueman
recently, which does all I need. My mouse works great with bluez and
automatically connects (all I had to do is set it to "trusted" in the
blueman device manager).
I sometimes have the problem that the mouse stops working, but then I
simply switch it off, wait for a while and switch it on again, but this
hasn't happened in a while now.
About networkmanager, I always disliked it very much and don't know what
KDE users do about it nowadays.
