Dark mode in linux

Comparing to windows, I notice that there are some differences in the Preference / Appearance tab
In windows the user interface style appears where I can choose default by the system or caliber style.
But in linux that option does not appear see first windows image, second linux image.
The question is: how could I activate the dark theme in linux.

Caliber version 4.8
Linux mint 19.3 with dark theme

From already thank you very much.

set your system colors to dark and calibre willl use them automatically. Or set CALIBRE_USE_DARK_PALETTE=1 environment variable.
