I had to upgrade to KDE 5 recently. One of the first things I immediately noticed was that my key composition table was no longer working. In earlier versions, I managed to force Qt and GTK to use XIM, which supported my huge additions to /usr/share/X11/locale/en_US.UTF-8/Compose.

As a mere KDE user without deeper insight, I first blamed KDE for it, but was kindly redirected to Qt as the underlying problem. When searching the net I found some emails from 2013 written by Paeglis Gatis, where I learned that XIM is deprecated in Qt5 and that support for key composition tables is planned to be done directly in Qt.

However, it seemed that task https://codereview.qt-project.org/#/c/48185/ is abandoned.

How do I make Qt use my key composition table? Or is there an alternative, equally versatile format for key composition in Qt?

Thanks for a fast answer: this problem has a huge impact on my work and slows me down considerably.
