German QWERTY Keyboard layout

Guys,

I have installed ibus, I am able to switch between English US and German QWERTZ keyboard layouts. I don't see German QWERTY keyboard listed in ibus Preferences, is there any way we can tweak this in?

On my previous install, I have tried to edit the key mapping with success, but I was wondering if there is any other way rather than messing around with the files. All I want is, Z and Y to switch places.

I have seen German Qwerty keyboard layout listed in Ubuntu, is there any way we can have something like that here?

Not an expert on this, but seems to be there in bullseye

grep -E ^xkb_symbols < /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/de | tail
xkb_symbols "koy_base" {
xkb_symbols "koy" {
xkb_symbols "bone_base" {
xkb_symbols "bone" {
xkb_symbols "bone_eszett_home_base" {
xkb_symbols "bone_eszett_home" {
xkb_symbols "neo_qwertz_base" {
xkb_symbols "neo_qwertz" {
xkb_symbols "neo_qwerty_base" {
xkb_symbols "neo_qwerty" {

I am still a noob, is there any way I can get this on Buster?
Where should I be looking at?

Re: German QWERTY Keyboard layout

I would do

sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration
# find the one
cat /etc/default/keyboard # check
# something to actually apply this stuff maybe, don't recall, I'd just logout/login
