But that doesn't exist. Here are the available layouts once I've 
selected "PC générique 105 touches (intl)", which I suppose is what you 
mean by PC105 (I don't think I need to translate?):

     Autre, latin-9 seulement
     Autre, sans touches mortes
     Autre, touches mortes Sun
     AZERTY géorgien Tskapo
     Bépo, ergonomique, façon Dvorak
     Bépo, ergonomique, façon Dvorak, latin-9 seulement
     Éliminer les touches mortes
     (Obsolète) Autre
     (Obsolète) Autre, sans touches mortes
     (Obsolète) Autre, touches mortes Sun
     Touches mortes Sun
