I configured my compose key in
~ $ cat /etc/default/keyboard # Check /usr/share/doc/keyboard-configuration/README.Debian for # documentation on what to do after having modified this file. # The following variables describe your keyboard and can have the same # values as the XkbModel, XkbLayout, XkbVariant and XkbOptions options # in /etc/X11/xorg.conf. XKBMODEL="pc105" XKBLAYOUT="us" XKBVARIANT="" XKBOPTIONS="compose:lwin"
Now the compose key is working in all GUI apps (Chrome, Firefox, Notes, emacs etc). However its not working in xfce4-terminal and also any of its subprocesses. For example when I start emacs from the menu the compose key will work but if i start it from the terminal (and a new GUI window opens) the compose key fails.
