comment Compizconfig needs rebind on every startup
Wow, maybe you should get rid of tweak. If last comment has no effect then open a terminal, run this command dconf reset -f /org/compiz/ then follow with this one which should log you out. setsid unity when logging back in you should be at the shipped defaults for compiz/unity. Use copy & paste on these 2 commands

Open ccsm > Preferences > Plugin List & enable Automatic plugin sorting if you have it disabled. Then open Scale > Bindings & set all the edge ones (monitor icon) back to defaults by clicking on the little x icon button on far right. Then I don't know, gave you 2 simple methods that didn't involve tweak tool or anything else.

Not sure why you can't use ccsm as described, makes no sense. Anyway for 2 start by opening a terminal then copy & paste the 2 commands under or create via cli into terminal 1 at a time, press enter to execute. This will open gedit with a blank file. In that file copy & paste all of the above under So c&p this into the newly created .desktop file , then save the file & exit gedit. If you don't still get this then please start a thread in ubuntu forums > Desktop Environments. (- it's so much easier than the limitations here..

comment How do I correctly install libpcre3-dev:i386?
Well adding that ppa doesn't really hurt here, just adds a few - The following extra packages will be installed: gcc-5-base gcc-5-base:i386 libc6-dev:i386 libpcre3:i386 libpcrecpp0:i386 libstdc++6 libstdc++6:i386 linux-libc-dev:i386 The following packages will be upgraded: libstdc++6 Did you happen to use trusty -proposed before then disable? (it's not enabled now.

Possibly something from that ppa. On 14.04 here it would install cleanly, adding 7 packages - gcc-4.8-base:i386 libc6-dev:i386 libpcre3:i386 libpcre3-dev:i386 libpcrecpp0:i386 libstdc++6:i386 linux-libc-dev:i386, what's your current gcc-4.8-base package?

Also to note - liblcms2-2 was part of your default Ubuntu install, you just upgraded to a newer version. As I mentioned it can't be removed, only upgraded or downgraded. It's also in this ppa which if inclined you could use instead of the previously mentioned one, very few packages in it. launchpad.net/~mc3man/+archive/ubuntu/mpv-tests

It was one of my multimedia ppa's. Likely this one & you may have be sent there for something else rather than given the page to read thru before using. launchpad.net/~mc3man/+archive/ubuntu/trusty-media Otherwise it is really easy to downgrade liblcms2-2 in synaptic package manager, if you want I'll post full instructions in an answer below

So you have installed liblcms2-2 from a ppa (newer version needed for mpv) & don't currently have that ppa enabled so you can't get the i386 version. You can either re-enable the ppa, update your sources then try aptitude again or you'll need to downgrade liblcms2-2 (it cannot be removed.) Which way do you want to go?

Have you ever had trusty -proposed repo enabled & installed or upgraded from? Try installing aptitude & going sudo aptitude install wine1.6 It is likely to fail, if so choose q (quit) option, then copy the complete terminal output and put in a pastebin with link here, this would be fine paste.ubuntu.com

comment Elementary OS on portable hard drive wont work
Nothing to do with Elementary, you probably installed the bootloader to the usb drive (sandisk) instead of the hdd (Seagate slim). So in that regard not off-topic at all
