Sometimes the mouse wheel just doesn’t work for me in vmware. Then I remembered I used to have to add some options for that in the X11 configuration file about 5-10 years ago. In modern native installations no such tricks should be needed, but I guess things are different when you run in vmware. So in case you ever need, the magic lines to put in /etc/X11/xorg.conf :

Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2" Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
