Resize a terminal window (linux/Xwindows)

101 100+
I've been working with ncurses for my user output. But, I've reached a limitation. I'd like to resize the window, but ncurses doesn't have the power to do that. It has the option, but I think gnome nerfs some of the self-management properties of the terminal.

In any case, is there any real good way to do this? I'm leaning towards gtkmm, but I want to be sure there wasn't anything more xwindows/terminal specific before I try my hand at something as broad as gtkmm.

Thanks all for any help.

ncurses is a c++ library for manipulating a linux terminal. It lets you take control of a linux terminal's input/output. Also, gtkmm is a c++ library for working with linux gnome desktop system.
