I find the default display of "Permissions" in nautilus (when viewing properties of a folder/file) difficult to use.
To solve this, I always used gconf-editor in 10.04 to change to the following:
gconf-editor: apps > nautilus > preferences > show_advanced_permissions
How can I get permissions to look like above in 12.04? The gconf-editor setting is not listed under nautilus in 12.04. Has it been moved?
