My Compose key (set to the Menu key) is not working in digikam, whether started from Kubuntu (Plasma) or from Xubuntu (XFCE desktop). I am running digikam by directly executing the digikam-6.4.0-x86-64.appimage file. It is working in all other applications that I have tested. By not working, I mean that the key has no effect: typing Compose o a results in oa instead of å.

The only thing I can think off setting digikam apart from other programs is that I'm starting digikam as an appimage file. Could this cause the Compose key to be not working? What can I do to debug and/or fix it?

From export | grep IM:

declare -x GTK_IM_MODULE="xim"
declare -x QT_IM_MODULE="xim"
declare -x XDG_RUNTIME_DIR="/run/user/1000"
