Did you modify the keymap for the root user as well?

If Emacs says "<Multi_key> is undefined" then it
should be easy enough to solve this, just define
(bind) it to do whatever you want. If you want it to
be a key sequence probably you need to make it a
"prefix key" as well, as in:

    ; step 1 - name
    (define-prefix-command    'C-o-prefix)

    ; step 2 - bind
    (global-set-key "\C-o"    'C-o-prefix)

    ; step 3 - normal usage as you would any key
    (global-set-key "\C-\M-j" 'scroll-left-1)
    ; ...
