Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

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.
