This is surprising because Compose should work when X Input method is selected
as well.
And it does for me, I just tested this again.

No matter whether scim is installed, running, and used or not, Compose is
for me in gedit.

env XMODIFIERS=@im=local GTK_IM_MODULE=xim gedit

uses the Compose support from Xorg.


uses the Compose support built into scim.

Both work. The first line should work as well when scim is not installed
and/or not running.

Do you have scim installed?

What is the value of XMODIFIERS and GTK_IM_MODULE in your environment?
