Description of problem:
I am trying to calibrate an old laptop with a connected HDMI screen.
The displays are set up in an extended desktop configuration so there should be two frame buffers.
Callibrating screen 1 (the laptop screen) works well.
When selecting screen 2 (the HDMI display) for calibration the calibration window where I am supposed to put my calibration device pops up on screen 1 not screen 2 as expected.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure a laptop with an extra display.
2. Configure the displays as separate screens in an extended desktop mode.
3. Plug in a supported calibration device
4. Calibrate primary display.
5. Unplug the calibration device.
6. Reinsert the calibration device.
7. Attempt to calibrate the secondary display
The calibration window pops up on the same screen in both cases, preventing calibration of one of the devices
The calibration window should pop up centered on the display selected for calibration.
My laptop is old with a NVidia card. After calibration the next test is to see if the Wayland driver is able to apply correct profiles to both displays, but that will be a separate issue. Lots of NVIDIA drivers (but not Nuveau) have had problems with this.
I have tested this using an X-Rite i1 colorimeter using medium quality calibration and display whitepoint. I also own a Colormunki photo spectrometer which is better but in general much slower and complex to use.

version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 28 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2019-05-28. Fedora 28 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
