There are multiple ways to achieve the same thing. It all boil downs to how to 
inform X that what keyboard layout you are using.

I regularly type मराठी(marathi) in all my programs from KDE and do not need any 
special installation.

Just go to system settings -> input devices -> keyboard layout -> configure 
layout and add the desired layout. Thats all.

I just checked it but asamese is not listed in there. Closest one is bengali.

Even in indian layout, there is no asamese variant.
