setxkbmap can be used for that:

   setxkbmap -query

shows me

,----
| rules:      evdev
| model:      pc105+inet
| layout:     us,us,us,us
| variant:    ,colemak,dvorak,
| options:    ctrl:nocaps,compose:ralt
`----

I do the ctrl:nocaps thing and the variants, but everything else is
preset for me somehow. If you don't have a compose key, then
I presume

   setxkbmap -option compose:ralt

will make Right-Alt be the compose key. The key combinations are slightly
different from your settings below:

compose+a " -> ä
compose+a ' -> á
compose+a ` -> à
compose+a ^ -> â
compose+a * -> å
compose+a , -> ą
compose+o / -> ø
compose+l / -> ł
compose+? ? -> ¿
compose+! ! -> ¡

I'm not sure who does all this - all I'm sure about is that it's not me!
