Gnome terminal resize info on Ubuntu 13.04 - raring

Ubuntu disabled the resize info tooltip for Gnome Terminal once again, and has once again changed their convulted method to restore it.

In this iteration of Ubuntu:

1) "sudo aptitude install compiz-plugins"
(or "sudo apt-get install compiz-plugins" if you don't have any aptitude)

2) "sudo aptitude install ccsm"

The run "ccsm". In the filter search, search for "Resize Info". The box is unchecked with its default tooltip turned off. Check the box. Compiz will then freeze up a little for a few seconds and then go back to normal. You now have Gnome terminal resize info tooltip enabled.
