      Yes, it's possible. And your settings look good. So you now need to find a font with the glyphs you want. Out of the fonts you list, I strongly suspect only DejaVu MIGHT have the ones you want, and apparently even DejaVu doesn't have them since you are seeing the "no character" box.

      Time to hit an Internet search engine for a monospace font for Indic scripts.
