I do not use Ubuntu, but have Debian Sid; so I guess it somewhere close. 

Open a console (command line) and type the following (without the quotes):-

"apt-cache search devanag"

If one of the output lines  says:-

"texlive-lang-indic - TeX Live: Indic"

you can simply install the texlive-lang-indic package usign synaptic
or aptitude or whatever. 

"apt-cache show texlive-lang-indic" gives the following information; 
<preformatted>  ;-)

Description: TeX Live: Indic
 Essential indic

  bangtex -- Class files for writing Bangla and Asamese with LaTeX.
