Hi,

welcome to LQ. Perhaps you could explain what you mean by "home group" and what you want to achieve with it.

Cheers,

Evo2.

I mean home group on wifi for sharing files printers and all these things.
Everything I need is to know where can I set it or some program to set it up.

Hi,

ok, sounds like you want to set up a samba server. Basically that means installing the "samba" package and configuring it (see /etc/samba/smb.conf). There is documentation on the web and in the samba-doc package. Post back with questions if you get stuck.

Evo2.

"Home Group" is a Windows term.

The Windows "home group" works only with Windows computers (Vista and above, I think--My Windows computer runs Win7).

If you want to include Windows machines in your home network and connect to them with Linux, do not use the Windows "Home Group" settings on them. Instead, set up what I think Windows now calls "simple sharing." In other words, just share the Windows directories in the directory properties and do not join them to a Windows "home group."
