Marco without Xpresent

PPA description

Builds of Marco (the MATE Window Manager) without Xpresent support. This resolves an issue for users of NVIDIA proprietary drivers 495 or later which results in the MATE Desktop session failing to start due to Xorg Xserever crashing.

Building without Xpresent causes Marco to fall back to Xrender support and preserves the use of the compositing manager in Marco. These packages provide a workaround until #1959995 is fixed in Ubuntu.

See these issues for more details:
