I'm not sure, but try running locate on your locale e.g.:

$ locate en_US.UTF-8
/usr/share/X11/locale/en_US.UTF-8
/usr/share/X11/locale/en_US.UTF-8/Compose
/usr/share/X11/locale/en_US.UTF-8/XI18N_OBJS
/usr/share/X11/locale/en_US.UTF-8/XLC_LOCALE
/usr/share/doc/libx11-dev/i18n/compose/en_US.UTF-8.html


If you don't have those (or similar) locale files, you need to enable
and generate that (evidently required, based on your environment)
locale.

Good luck,
