For Romanized Sanskrit using IAST diacritics, I have had success in XeLaTeX with 
the following fonts:

Gentium                    http://tinyurl.com/a44y7     ttf-gentium
Charis SIL                 http://tinyurl.com/yjzbjc    ttf-sil-charis
Linux Libertine OTF        http://tinyurl.com/ybf678    linux-libertine
Chandas                    http://tinyurl.com/ykku36    ttf-devanagari-fonts 

DejaVu Serif               http://tinyurl.com/ylxmbp    ttf-dejavu

The second column gives download websites and the last the Ubuntu/Debian package
