i've installed the directories under language/devanagari/contrib/fonts

the type1 directory's readme says:

  These outline renderings (PostScript Type 1) of Frans Velthuis'
  Devanagari fonts for TeX were created by Primoz Peterlin
  <primoz.peterlin at biofiz.mf.uni-lj.si>. 
  The original METAFONT sources were automatically converted to PFB using
  Peter Szabo's TeXtrace <http://www.inf.bme.hu/~pts/textrace/> package,
  and subsequently edited using George Williams' PfaEdit PostScript font
  editor <http://pfaedit.sourceforge.net/>. 
  The AFM files were also automatically created by PfaEdit. Peterlin notes
  that a direct conversion from the TeX font metrics to Adobe font metric
  files might yield better results. 
  To use these Type 1 fonts, copy the contents of dvng.map to psfonts.map,
  or modify the dvips config.ps file to reference the file.
