If you need to set the geometry of the octave shell, use

        xterm -geometry 75x35 -e octave

If octave is already running you can use xtermset to change the
settings of the already running xterm, eg.

        octave> system("xtermset -bg black")

xtermset is a seperate program (not part of a common X11 installation).
If it did not ship with your operation system, you can fetch the sourcecode
