I'm trying to use ~/.XCompose in Qt programs like Anki, but they don't recognize my settings (a + _ giving ª instead of ā, for example).

Most help guides online tell me to set QT_IM_MODULE to XIM, but I also want to use ibus. Is there a way I can get XCompose to work in Qt programs and keep ibus?

Install the ibus-qt4 package, otherwise the QT4 programs will not work.
