Cinnamon Theming Issue

I recently shifted from Garuda gnome to cinnamon. Cinnamon is great but there is an issue of theme in some apps. Whatever theme I select, apps like garuda assistant, garuda settings manager, etc. aren't themed. When command sudo cinnamon-settings is entered and in themes, by defualt Sweet Dark is selected and even if I change, changes are not reflected.

Edit : Output of sudo cinnamon-settings when I try to change any theme option it shows error like this in terminal

> [sudo] password for yash:     
> Using pam module (python3-pampy)
> Loading Themes module
> Could not establish proxy for org.Cinnamon: Error spawning command line “dbus-launch --autolaunch=e5e429e88a9049acade6448fc6f5eac3 --binary-syntax --close-stderr”: Child process exited with code 1

Please help me regarding this.

Those are Qt applications. Qt theming and GTK theming is separate.

This article describes some options for setting themes and making them match:
