Pop!OS 17.10 Parallels 13 for Apple Mac

I have downloaded and installed the app formerly known as Gnome Tweak Tool in attempt to solve my keyboard issues. I was expecting to find a tab called Typing, and therein to find a list of keyboard options from which I could select a keyboard. Problem is that there is no Typing tab. I googled "gnome tweak not showing keyboard options" and found a promising link for "[SOLVED] Typing tab missing on gnome-tweak-tool on ubuntu 17.10" on https://ubuntuforums.org. This link led to a forbidden error message.

Does anyone know how I can access the Typing tab in Gnome Tweak Tools?

[EDIT] It seems that in the latest version of Gnome Tweak, the functionality of the Typing tab has been moved over to the Keyboard and Mouse tab and specifically the Additional Layout Options button. The problem in my case is that pressing this button just brings up an empty dialog box. This is no doubt connected with the fact that when I run the Tweak tool from the command line, I see this message when I press that button... (gnome-tweak-tool:11199): GnomeDesktop-WARNING **: Failed to load XKB rules file /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/evdev.xml: Error on line 1 char 1: Document must begin with an element (e.g. <book>)

This is the first few lines of the "offending" evdev.xml file... <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE xkbConfigRegistry SYSTEM "xkb.dtd"> <xkbConfigRegistry version="1.1"> <modelList> <model> <configItem> <name>pc101</name> <description>Generic 101-key PC</description> <vendor>Generic</vendor> </configItem> </model>

While strictly speaking the document does not start with an XML element but rather XML meta data, it's all valid XML. There seems to be a bug report active at Canonical, https://www.mail-archive.com/desktop-packages@lists.launchpad.net/msg523635.html, so I've activated notifiation on that, and will wait and see what happens. If anyone else has any bright ideas, I'd love to hear from you! Thanks in advance.
