I'm using p4v version 'Rev. Perforce Visual Client/LINUX26X86_64/2014.3/998867'. I tried it on both Ubuntu 12.04 and 14.04 (both 64 bit) and the mouse wheel doesn't work for me - it won't scroll either up or down. Both are running in VMs under Windows 7.
The mouse wheel works fine in other Linux apps (e.g. Konsole, emacs).
Any idea how to fix this?

Thank you for sending your P4V version. In researching online, recent versions of Ubuntu have reported scrolling issues, such as here:
- Have you checked the "Machine" menu of the Virtual machine window in which Ubuntu was running? Some sites report that you must select "Disable Mouse Integration".
- What are your mouse scroll settings? For example, Go to Unity Dash (press Super/Windows key) and search for Mouse & Touchpad
- Are you using 'guest additions'?

Indeed, I insisted on specifying the p4v version and the Ubuntu version, but forgot the VM platform . It's VMWare Player 6.0.5. I am using VMWare tools (probably the equivalent of guest additions). I tried one of the suggestions from askubuntu - uninstalling and reinstalling VMWare tools, on the Ubuntu 12.04 machine, but that didn't work.
I've looked at mouse settings on 12.04 and didn't see anything suspicious; as I said, scrolling works fine in other apps. I could give WMware player 7.0 a shot, maybe...

You're welcome! Aaah okay you are using the VMWare Player 6.0.5. software. Did you check the menu settings in VMWare Player 6.0.5. for your Ubuntu instance and check/un-check any options for the mouse to see if it made a difference? Have you tried to release the mouse by pressing Ctrl-Alt?
What are your mouse scroll settings in Ubuntu?

I see Player -> Manage -> Virtual Machine Settings... in the VMP menu, it seems the only place where one can set up hardware. There's nothing about the mouse there, unfortunately, there's one entry for the USB controller (see second screenshot).
In the 12.04 VM I have a Ubuntu install over which I've installed kubuntu-desktop and I'm using KDE. I've added a screenshot for that, too. The advanced tab has settings for pointer acceleration, double click interval etc.

You need an xserver-xorg-input-vmmouse package with the following commit : http://cgit.freedesk...712f7257b221370.
Unfortunately it's not part of any official release. There is an unofficial build (https://launchpad.ne....series_filter=), but only for Utopic (Ubuntu 14.10).

Are you aware of any git repository the Ubuntu guys might have for xserver? Maybe I could try applying the patch on top of that and rebuilding debs...

Fetching the source involves:
$ apt-get source xserver-xorg-input-vmmouse
Then adding the patch to the list to be applied - I downloaded the patch from the above link and then saved it as xserver-xorg-input-vmmouse-12.9.0/debian/patches/02-fix-vmmouse-qt5_3.diff. Then added the patch in debian/patches/series. I then ran
To generate a different version for the .deb (so you'd know it's different from the official deb) and then
debuild -us -uc -b
to rebuild the deb package. I got some errors about necessary build dependencies, so I had to install those and then reran the above. Then installed the resulting .deb package and voila, the mouse wheel now works with the latest p4v.
