Basically I had this issue going on with my ubuntu where I can't control the keyboard backlight. People around my workspace was also getting annoyed seeing flashy lights from all over the keyboard. I searched a lot online for a solution, but sadly I couldn't find a working one. Today I luckily found one.

If this link doesn't work try this one.

After downloading and extracting it to the home folder run these

cd rogauracore-retool
autoreconf -i
./configure
make
sudo make install

Hope it works for you!!
