I'm trying to use this to make the US international with dead keys layout function correctly -- the combination ' + c should give a ç instead of a ć, and more importantly, unsupported combinations should just give both characters in sequence, for example ' + t should output simply 't.

The above works in most applications, even in tty, but for a few, such as Opera and LibreOffice the custom compose table is completely ignored. I've noticed that the variable GTK_IM_MODULE is never set, for some reason, but since GTK applications work fine it doesn't seem to be the issue.

Is there a way to force these applications to use the correct compose table?


Of course, right after posting the question I managed to fix the problem.

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.input-sources show-all-sources true

did the trick.
