Issues running my same project using Debian based

Originally I created a project using cargo on Windows. Now I am trying to use the exact same project on my Debian based machine, however there are some few issues when I open it and build it in vscode.

When opening in vscode, using the same extension(s) I get this error:

Not too sure where the server logs are.

when I run cargo build I get these errors:

error: failed to run custom build command for `servo-fontconfig-sys v5.1.0

and this:

(exit status: 101)

  Perhaps you should add the directory containing `fontconfig.pc'
  to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable

Any ideas how I would be able to fix this? Am I allowed to use the same project created on Windows and import it to Linux or do I have to start brand new?

Have you tried installing the fontconfig library?

ITs already installed.

Is it 2.11 or later? Is pkg-config installed too?

"pkg-config" "--libs" "--cflags" "fontconfig" "fontconfig >= 2.11.1"

sorry read your comment too late I already tried

sudo apt install libfontconfig libfontconfig1-dev

and this worked for me, thanks
