For Malayalam  : fonts-smc need to be used instead of ttf-malayalam-

Packages are already in debian upstream .

Status in ttf-indic-fonts package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The Debian fonts team recently restructured the indic fonts. ttf-indic-fonts changed to fonts-indic. This is meta package and all packages ttf-[language]-fonts renamed to fonts-[script/foundry]. In addition to this all fonts were updated to latest versions from upstreams. 
  I request ubuntu maintainers to update the fonts to latest versions and consider following the debian package naming changes for fonts.
