I tried with French keyboard and with Indic languages. The fonts are
installed. I can type perfectly with the corresponding keyboard layout.

Interesting. I tried it and it works. But only for settings in the gnome
tool, obviously.

I am looking to print the layouts which are selected by scim by the
user. Scim comes with some additional layouts which are not in the gnome
keyboard layout tool. So, any similar method to print out scim layouts?
