One question is how you have set up your Compose key. I set mine up with
KDE, in System Settings > Regional & Language. I enabled keyboard
layouts to go to Advanced, and set the Compose key there (left Win key
on my keyboards).
There are probably ways in Xmodmap to set up a Compose key also. You
might have to try different ways, different keys to see if you can get
one to work.
