comment Schemas missing - Unity Tweak Tool
If as mentioned you don't wish to purge that ppa then try extracting the schema from unity-webapps-service package, placing in /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/ , recompiling glib schemas & see if unity tweak suffers in use.

comment How do you fix “unmet dependencies … but [something] is to be installed” error?
Run apt-cache policy libmysqlclient18 & you'll see that you have a version of libmysqlclient18 from mariadb. If they don't provide a dev package then you'll need to live without the dev package or get rid of mariadb & whatever it's installed

comment dependency in ppa
You could simply copy libccd from that other ppa to your ppa, then your ppa would not need a dep on the other ppa nor would any user of your ppa need to add the other ppa

comment how do i get dvd menus in mplayer
No clue what Bednar is but if the command works then mplayer has dvdnav support. I keep some recent builds here for users though do Not provide mencoder & likely never will - launchpad.net/~mc3man/+archive/ubuntu/mplayer-test I'm probably going to switch the default dvd device from the current /dev/dvd to /dev/sr0 in future builds so many won't need to specify the device.

comment Drag-and-drop file onto executable in Quick Launcher
Only launcher items that have the same mimetype in their .desktop file as the file being dragged will stay active. To see with a .pdf add evince (Document Viewer) to the unity launcher, when dragging a pdf it will remain active. So check the Mimetype= line in the .desktop of the launcher item you want active for pdf mimetypes listed (or any other file/mime

curl (7.35.0-1ubuntu2.5) would be provided by either trusty-security or trusty-updates. ( generally smart to have both enabled.

comment installing the newest LittleCMS library in 14.04
Are you sure you need 2.7. I provide 2.6 in a couple of ppa's for 14.04 but i've also seen a rawtherapee ppa that has both stable & unstable trusty builds that appear to use the default lcms for trusty, ie. - launchpad.net/~dhor/+archive/ubuntu/myway If you want a link to ppa with lcms-2.6 ask (haven't looked at whether 2.7 would be ok for 14.04 yet, note that a lot of apps use lcms
