I have a problem about turning off keyboard backlight that I asked here with no useful answers.

After searching on internet I find a package for vaio control center and downloaded it from here, I don't know how to install it.

This is the output of trying one solution:

USER@XXXXpc:~/vaio-control-center-0.1$ ls
compile  Makefile             run               vaio-control-center      vcc
COPYING  moc_main_window.cpp  ui_main_window.h  vaio-control-center.pro

USER@XXXXpc:~/vaio-control-center-0.1$ ./compile
make: *** No rule to make target `/usr/share/qt/mkspecs/linux-g++-64/qmake.conf', needed by `Makefile'.  Stop.

USER@XXXXpc:~/vaio-control-center-0.1$ ./run
./run: 3: ./run: ./vaio-control-center: not found

USER@XXXXpc:~/vaio-control-center-0.1$ 


Updated

I tried also with @pandya's suggestion from here. and the output is as follows:

root@user-pc:/# cd /home/user/vaio-f11-linux.control-center
root@user-pc:/home/user/vaio-f11-linux.control-center# ls
compile  COPYING  resource.qrc  run  sony-acpid  vaio-control-center.pro  vcc

root@user-pc:/home/user/vaio-f11-linux.control-center# ./compile
-su: ./compile: Permission denied
root@user-pc:/home/user/vaio-f11-linux.control-center# sudo ./compile
sudo: ./compile: command not found
root@user-pc:/home/user/vaio-f11-linux.control-center# gksudo ./compile
root@user-pc:/home/user/vaio-f11-linux.control-center#  <----- nothing happened here
root@user-pc:/home/user/vaio-f11-linux.control-center# ./run
-su: ./run: Permission denied
root@user-pc:/home/user/vaio-f11-linux.control-center# sudo ./run
sudo: ./run: command not found
root@user-pc:/home/user/vaio-f11-linux.control-center# gksudo ./run
root@user-pc:/home/user/vaio-f11-linux.control-center#  <----- nothing happened here
root@user-pc:/home/user/vaio-f11-linux.control-center# 

and after running that I didn't see any affect on keyboard backlight.

this how download the file

$ wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/vaio-control-ce/vaio-control-center-0.1.tar.bz2
enter code here

you have to install qt4-qmake

$ sudo apt-get install libqt4-dev qt4-qmake cmake r-base-dev libcurl4-gnutls-dev

& install g++

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-sdk-team/ppa
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jerzy-kozera/zeal-ppa
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install build-essential g++

for the compilation then

$ tar -xvf vaio-control-center-0.1.tar.bz2
$ cd vaio-control-center-0.1
$ /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/qt4/bin/qmake -o Makefile vaio-control-center.pro
$ make
$ ./run

you will get this another error you need to post that error in stackoverflow.com tag c++ & qt see what they can do

    A bit of gray area, but I don't think asking at SO was helpful, that question is about to be closed. Also, duplicates between SE sites is not really acceptable. This question is asking installation help for program source package from user perspective, while Stack Overflow expects to give answers for programmers. Question could be almost same, but answers probably aren't. – hyde Aug 21 '14 at 18:53
