I checked some other things, not your mapping and found some-
I've forgotten that I did rebuild libreoffice with --disable-
gtk --disable-gtk3 , and therefore without vclplug at all.
Then I've found a gtk2 libreoffice version, and some other
gtk2-gtk3 apps and nothing works there!
Some investigation shows that im-config package sets
environment variable and this breaks GTK IM completely. Unset-
ting XMODIFIERS or setting XMODIFIERS='' does something better,
but the default IM handling in the GTK is also completely broken:
it doesn't support XKeysymDB, and doesn't support multiple sym-
bols result per mapping and also always reads in default
/usr/share/.../Compose file like
is added at the begining of ~/.XCompose
But setting GTK_IM_MODULE=xim fixes that problems (after unset-
ting XMODIFIERS !)
so, env XMODIFIERS='' GTK_IM_MODULE=xim libreoffice may work for
