Use F5 or the menu Run > Start Debugging to start a debug session:

This starts debug session. In case of troubles, check the Debug Console:

Reading symbols from arm-none-eabi-objdump.exe --syms -C -h -w E:\tm4c123gxl\blinky/build/blinky.elf
Reading symbols from arm-none-eabi-nm.exe --defined-only -S -l -C -p E:\tm4c123gxl\blinky/build/blinky.elf
Launching GDB: arm-none-eabi-gdb.exe -q --interpreter=mi2 "E:\\tm4c123gxl\\blinky/build/blinky.elf"
    Set "showDevDebugOutput": true in your "launch.json" to see verbose GDB transactions here. Helpful to debug issues or report problems
