Is it possible to pop up the gnome-* commands to my laptop

I am running Ubuntu 20.04.3 Desktop version on a remote server. I need to run some gnome-based commands to view the configuration, for example: gnome-control-center.
I did set up the ssh tunnel to forward the X11. I am able to run firefox on the remote machine and display the browser on my Mac laptop which runs XQuartz as X windows server.

But when I run gnome-control-center, I get the following:

$ gnome-control-center
libGL error: No matching fbConfigs or visuals found
libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast

(gnome-control-center:26653): Gdk-ERROR **: 06:13:35.984: The program 'gnome-control-center' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)'.
  (Details: serial 174 error_code 2 request_code 149 (GLX) minor_code 24)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the GDK_SYNCHRONIZE environment
   variable to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
Trace/breakpoint trap (core dumped)

Does anyone know what causes this error or I missed anything.

Thanks in advance.
