Unhappy Gnome Display Manager (GDM) - Ubuntu - Primary Monitor


I'm desperately trying to configure the GDM (Gnome Display Manager) to display the login page on the monitor attached to my dock (via DisplayLink) (and not on my laptop).

To do so, I followed the following procedure:
a) Configuration of my external monitor (attached to my dock) to be my primary monitor with the tool "gnome-control-center display".
b) Application of the following procedure for my GDM to use this configuration

Unfortunately, this does not work.

On the other hand, this procedure works well when my external screen is connected live on my laptop.

So it seems that there is a problem or something that needs to be done to make it work when my external monitor is connected to my dock.

For information :
- I use a wavlink wl-ug39dk1 "dock".
- My OS is ubuntu 20.04
- My screen is a HP 32 inches

I've attached my xml configuration file if it helps.

If someone has a solution to solve this problem, it would be great !
