Recently on Tombuntu there's a post which tells you how to Enable the Advanced File Permissions Dialog in Nautilus by issuing the command in a terminal:

"gconftool-2 --type bool --set /apps/nautilus/preferences/show_advanced_permissions True'' (without the quotes, to disable the feature, simply replace `True' with `False')

If you feel more comfortable to achieve the goal through a GUI way. Here you go:

  1. press Alt+F2
  2. type gconf-editor and <Enter>
  3. from the left pane in the pop-up window, choose app -> nautilus -> preferences
  4. go to the right pane, find out the show_advanced_permissions, check the box on its right
  5. close the window, done.

As you look around, you can change other configurations "under the hood" in the same way. It's said that ubuntu-tweak also lets you do many configurations easily, including enable this "show advanced file permission" feature in Nautilus, but I have not try it.
