Post Need help to install Kup Backup System

I'm trying to install Kup Backup System

I cloned the git repository here to my computer and checked the readme file, which I share below:

$ cat README 
To compile you need:
 - CMake
 - Development headers for libqt4, libkdeui, libkfile and libsolid. 

Run from the source directory:
mkdir build
cd build
cmake .. 
sudo make install

Note that this will install a policykit file that allows any user to have kup run 'bup' as root without asking for password.
I have cmake already, but when I tried to install the next item - 'libqt4-dev' (which I guess is what they mean by 'development headers), I got the following output:

$ sudo aptitude install libqt4-dev
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  libdrm-dev{a} libdrm-nouveau2{a} libgl1-mesa-dev{a} libglu1-mesa-dev{a} libkms1{a} libpthread-stubs0{a}
  libpthread-stubs0-dev{a} libqt4-dev libqt4-opengl-dev{a} libqtwebkit-dev{a} libx11-dev{a} libx11-doc{a}
  libxau-dev{a} libxcb1-dev{a} libxdmcp-dev{a} libxext-dev{a} mesa-common-dev{a} qt4-linguist-tools{a}
  qt4-qmake{a} x11proto-core-dev{a} x11proto-input-dev{a} x11proto-kb-dev{a} x11proto-xext-dev{a}
  xorg-sgml-doctools{a} xtrans-dev{a}
The following packages will be upgraded:
  libqt4-dbus libqt4-declarative libqt4-designer libqt4-help libqt4-network libqt4-opengl
  libqt4-qt3support libqt4-script libqt4-scripttools libqt4-sql libqt4-svg libqt4-test libqt4-xml
  libqt4-xmlpatterns libqtcore4 libqtgui4 qdbus

Accept this solution? [Y/n/q/?]
This looks pretty scary to me. Any advice would be much appreciated!

I'm running Kubuntu 12.04.01.

I've just solved this.

Below the link the GIt repo in the download page, I found a list of .deb files for each distro! Sorry - should have carried on reading!
