I believe there is no Google IME in Ubuntu for Marathi. But if you want you can add a full fledged devnagiri keyboard. It takes a while to remember the new keyboard but once you have learnt it you no longer need Google IME. Below is the procedure to add Marathi keyboard. Go to settings/keyboard layout/ then press the '+' icon on the bottom and search for 'Indian' keyboard layout. You can now switch between Marathi and English using the keyboard icon on the top.

Switch to next source using: Super(Windows) + Space

Switch to previous source using: Shift + $uper + Space
