Hi,

I'm using Debian Wheezy with Xorg, Xfce4, and GDM installed, and cannot for the
life of me get the compose key working.

Xfce4 barely recognizes the chances, and when I use  setxkbmap -option
compose:lwin that silently fails.

I'm sorry but the general pseudo package is not a user support tool. Try
