    KDE file selection - invert selection

    I am looking for a way to invert the current selection of files in a folder -- very easy in windows explorer - does Dolphin support this feature ?

    For certain. Extensions, it is easy

    ls * | grep -v. .h. will exclude all filenames containing .h

    When trying to exclude a specific list, as long as the grep rule works, it is easy to do.


    ls * | grep -v. Pattern

    Pattern has to follow regular expression rules.

    Thank you for the grep example ... I was hoping there was a menu item/technique w/in Dolphin or Konqueror (like there is in Windows Explorer) --

    I answered my own question about KDE -- CTRL-Shift-A will invert the current selection -- Just tried it in Konqueror ..

    I think you need to have both konqueror and dolphin installed, and it works. Konqueror uses dolphin somehow.
