I've never had trouble before, but for some reason I can't get a Compose key setting to work in Fedora 26/KDE. I usually use the Left Win key, but I also tried Prt Screen, neither have any effect.

Not exactly the solution I was looking for, but I could not get Compose key to work using left-win, right-win, or Prt Scr, but was able to get it to work with Scroll Lock, which on my laptop is Fn-Delete.

For information, I had a similar issue. There are changes in Ibus which may trigger the issue on some ibus inputs. Are you using an Ibus input engine by any chance?

If so, the problem is likely the same. And your specific Ibus engine has to be fixed. Here is how I fixed the issue in Ibus-Hangul (Korean IME) for instance:

I'm sorry there is no other easier solution than having to patch a software. If you are not using an Ibus IME, then I don't know.
