Hi folks. Not sure if this could help someone.. anyway, find below what I did to configure the GNS3 IOU VM in order to work with keyboard layout shown below:

After importing GNS3 IOU VM

1- login

apt-get update

apt-get install console-setup

4- console-setup will be started right after finishing console-setup installation.

5- Read the screen and choose the layout matching the keyboard for your machine
6- In my case I've choosen '19 - Other' -> '71 - Portuguese (Brazil)' for Country of origin for the keyboard.
7- For keyboard layout matching my machine I've choosen '1. Portuguese (Brazil)'

8- 'Encoding to use on the console' was set to '27. UTF-8'

9- 'Character set to support' was set to '20. Guess optimal character set'

10- voila.. keyboard was properly configured with dead keys (Alt Gr) working fine.

11- If you need test several keyboard configurations before choosing the right one for you, just restart console-setup as shown below:
dpkg-reconfigure console-setup

When reconfiguring you will be able to change the layout, character set, font type and font size.

In time:
    Such configuration has worked for my keyboard.
    Your configuration will be slightly different from mine.
    I have not changed language settings. I just have fixed the keyboard layout.
    Off course comments corrections and improvements will be very welcomed.
Hope it helps you ;)
