How can I set the compose key to End?

  • I solved the problem with help from @chaskes:

    xmodmap -e "keycode 115 = Multi_key End"
    

    remapped the first level of End to the compose key, but allows me to press Shift-End to send an actual End keypress. I made this permanent by putting it in my ~/.xinitrc.
