I can not reproduce the problem, but I use another operating system
(Ubuntu 10.10) and an older LibreOffice (3.3.4), the LibreOffice

try to install the most recent stable version, which seems to be 3.5.5
at the moment.

If you can't make it work, an obvious workaround would be to use the
Auto correction feature in LibreOffice. I think ”Straße” is already in
the list if you set the character language style to German. If not,
you can easily add it yourself in whatever language you want.

I thought of that, but that works if you only have a couple of words
with non-standard characters. I write a lot in Swedish and German (among
other languages), both languages with lots of those characters. So I'll
probably loose more time building replacement lists than just making a
row of the most occurring charters in vim and copying that to each
document after opening it. From that row I copy the characters needed
when writing. It is cumbersome, but as a temporary measure it is workable.

But really, it should work. I use Caps Lock for compose, just like
you, and it worked fine in LibreOffice Calc 3.3.4. I will install a
more recent version soon and try, I've just been lazy lately, or maybe
busy (I'm in the middle of my vacation right now)…

I've used both KDE and dpkg-reconfigure to map the compose key to
Capslock and in *all* other applications that works just fine. But
somehow it doesn't in LibreOffice (it does in the version provided by
