check out http://bonn.linuxberg.com/x11html/fil_compression.html there are a bunch of such tools, all rated.  The first one on the page looks like what you want, but check out the others.

You didn't state if you have Gnome or KDE as desktop, so these are only X11, there are also pages specific to each of those desktops.
