[ubuntu] TGZ Installation Help

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have been trying to install Wunderlist and Utorrent. I have extracted them and installed build essentials and followed lots of other tuts but still keep getting these responses: Code: make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop. and Code: make: *** No rule to make target `install'.  Stop. Really would like some help! (Hardware)
