These actually are ligatures (or combination of half and full sound
vyanjans) and are not "stand-alone" characters, as are tr (as in rashtra,
trikon, ...) and shr (as in shri). You can get ksh by k.s (kak.sA), gn by
j~n (as in yaj~n or j~nAn), tr by tr (as in trikon), shr by "sr (as in
"srImAn). This combination logic is as per Hindi/Sanskrit vyakaran
(grammar). I am enclosing below trial.dn for these kind of words for the 
devnag package.
