Do you mean that you already have those font files and want to install them? Or do you mean that you are looking for Malayalam font files? – Timo Kluck Aug 8 '12 at 19:52

If you have the font files, just open nautilus, navigate to the file and open it with font viewer. There's a button "Install font".

If you have the fonts installed in Windows, you could navigate to the Windows fonts directory and do the above procedure.
