Nautilus does can select files with pattern based, also.
Ctrl+S or Edit -> Select Pattern
Write pattern in dialog box. Like,
*ttf (or *TTF. Unlike MS Windows world, up,downcase will hadle diffrently. )
Push ok. Then nautilus select(invert) files that match with pattern
and you can copy, cut, and other action with all of them.
Be careful yourself when work with root privilege.
sudo, su, gksudo, gksu ...
Because of this reason, If possible, I like using my home
directoy(~/.fonts) more than system directory(/usr/share/fonts). It
also make simple your backup list !
But if you share your machin with others(family, ...). sudo helps you :- )
