Bug Description

In System Settings->Keyboard Layouts->Add the following Dutch layouts are available:

  Dutch
  Dutch (Macintosh)
  Dutch (standard)
  Dutch (Sun dead keys)

None of these are the common layout that Dutch users coming from MS Windows may have used. The Dutch (Macintosh) layout is close, but differs in the dead-keys configuration. Over the years, other users have observed the same issue:

  Add a Dutch (US international with dead keys) layout.

Ideally a "Dutch (US international with dead keys)" layout should be added to 'xkb-data' so that users can view it. Note that the available layouts available on the console differ from those available under the GUI.

The dead keycombinations not working as expected are:

 1. "I'm" becomes "Iḿ".

(other combinations to follow).
