I was able to get it working in the console, by putting setxkbmap -options "compose:prsc" in my bashrc file but it doesn't seem to work in graphical applications.

Any ideas?

(In case you're wondering why I have to use print screen, print screen is where right menu/super should be on my keyboard)


According to the man page it should be -option rather than -options!

setxkbmap -option "compose:prsc"

It works for me.

I solved it using this post.

In dconf-editor -> org -> gnome -> desktop -> input-sources -> xkb-options I added 'compose:prsc' and it works perfectly.
