On my Linux system (with KDE Plasma 5.13.4) I have configured the compose key to type special characters, like ö, è, ß or €. This works in my browser (as you can see), in my terminal and in my text editors. But it does not work in LibreOffice (v5.1.6.2), although it did work in LibreOffice before with LinuxMint. How can I get it to work again?

How did you do it? In the KDE settings or compiling a keyboard layout with xkb?

The problem was solved when LO 6.0 came in. Although not for the € which still does not compose in LO.
