combining multilink central with usb generic

Hey,

I'm using the nRF52840 dongle with SDK15.3. Am trying to make it a central device that is configured as a HID mouse when plugged. So I'm combining both multilink_central and USB_Generic examples.

}

am getting these errors:

am not sure if there is conflict in difinitions or something needs to be changed in config.h file. I have enabled all of both needs but am not sure what is missing.

Aside: is there an easier way to have the dongle be seen as an HID mouse and always looking to pair with the MAC address i provide?

Help is appriciated,

Thanks,

Maher
