Bug Description

* Impact

The screen labels displayed when settigns are open are inverted

* Test Case

Display 1 is the laptop's built-in monitor
Display 2 is the external monitor set as being the primary display

To reproduce:

1) Go to the Appearance tab
2) "Show on" will indicate on which display the dock is being shown
3) In my case it is set to "1. Built in display" but it appears on the second or primary display
4) Change the setting and the dock will move but...
5) In my case if I change to "2. GKE 24 (Primary display)" the dock appears on the built-in display.

* Regression potential

Checking that in settings -> display the screen labels are correct

Daniel, the other issue uou mentioned is different, it's the handling of what 'left' means in a RTL locale

The bug here is about the screen logic being inverted, if you pick to display the launcher on the display 1 it's shown on display 2 (same in reverse)

I started gnome-control-center to verify I was still seeing the bug and then enabled -proposed and updated to version 1:3.36.3-0ubuntu1.

I restarted gnome-control-center and saw the drop-down now correctly shows on which display the dock is being shown. All three settings work as they should as the dock can be moved between displays, or shown on both displays and the drop-down always shows the correct text unlike previously.

Marking as verified.
