bash script to resize gnome terminal ?
GNU bash, version 3.00.16(1)-release (i386-redhat-linux-gnu)
I have put together a simple bash script that only requires a small terminal window to be usable. Basically I use it to change tv channels on my windows box, so I like to have it open all the time. I made a launcher for the panel which simply calls the script and requires it to be run in a terminal window.
Now, I have customised the text colours, but the terminal is always a default size. I only need the terminal window to be 33 columns by 16 lines, but I can't find any info on the net on how to adjust this from the bash script. My best idea so far would be to call a second script (without requiring a terminal)that then calls gnome-terminal with dimensions and the name of the main script.
Anybody got any ideas ?
If you have, maybe you could tell me how to get bash to enforce a particular profile in gnome terminal and also hide the menu bar ...
Cheeky I know, but just the resize thing would be a great help.
