You need to say something like
$ setxkbmap  -option compose:menu

then the windows menu key becomes the compose key
Or
$ 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
