Yes.  You need to get the TT font server from
http://hawk.ise.chuo-u.ac.jp/student/person/tshiozak/x-tt/index-eng.html

Note that this is very new, so you may find that this is currently slightly more work than you expected.  It won't be long before Linux distributions ship with this by default I expect (not longer than 6 or 12 months).
