Tidying up Dired Further
Something is still bugging me with my dired tidy up and I think it is wanting to add the ability to remove dot files.
I am currently using the Dolphin file manager on linux and by default I tend not to show the dot files for a cleaner output, generally the only dot file of course I really care about are the emacs ones and I know where they are!
With some hunting around I copy pasted the following and it works perfectly:
;; hide dotfiles and firefox.tmp ;; Toggle Hidden Files in Emacs dired with C-x M-o (setq dired-omit-files (concat dired-omit-files "\\|^\\..+$\\|firefox.tmp$")) ;; dired omit (add-hook 'dired-mode-hook (lambda () (dired-omit-mode 1)))
I just now need to muscle memorise the key combination to toggle enable them again, hence:
C-x M-o (dired-omit-mode &optional ARG) Toggle omission of uninteresting files in Dired (Dired-Omit mode).
