This actually worked out for me (i'm on Debian 10.10 with MATE Desktop):

Exec ["pkexec", "env", "DISPLAY=" & Env["DISPLAY"], "XAUTHORITY=" &
Env["XAUTHORITY"], Application.Path &/ "vcpufreq-gui.gambas"] Wait

Yes It's an older version of Gambas (3.12) but it showed me that the plugin
it used was qt5ct.

Checking your initial error message it looks like xcb is complaining. Is
xcb installed in your Mint installation?
