Eclipse – “Invalid file name: must contain only [a-z0-9_.]”

When you rename an image file on the res folder show following error message:

Invalid file name: must contain only [a-z0-9_.]

ie, file name must start with a lowercase letter, then it may contain lowercase/uppercase letters or numbers or underscores or dots.

Select file name on the Package Explorer then
click the right mouse button -> Refactor -> Rename
or

press Alt+Shift+R
and insert valid file name.

Did my solution solve your problem?
