Set the default height and width of a gnome-terminal

Launch it with gnome-terminal –geometry 135×30 (edit the menu or create a new launcher).

Adjust the launchsettings in ~/.xbindkeysrc

“gnome-terminal –geometry 135×30”
  m:0x10 + c:116

  1. Even better, set up another profile the way you like it and then call it like this:

    gnome-terminal –geometry=190×30 –window-with-profile=taillog –command ‘ssh pse03 taillog.py’

    so in this case, I have a profile named “taillog” with a tiny monospaced font, white bg, black text, huge buffer, etc. and then map all this to a button/icon on my task bar. It fires open a window with my prefs to the right size and runs a remote ssh login to pipe out the logs to the terminal.

    Schweeeet!
