You need to say something like
$ setxkbmap -option compose:menu
then the windows menu key becomes the compose key
$ setxkbmap -option compose:ralt
then its the right-alt
You can check whats currently the state of xkb with
$ setxkbmap -print
And you can clean up with a bare
$ setkkb -option
else these options 'pile-up' as a -print would show
