Problems With Fonts on Tirex Mapnik

Hi i’m trying to build a render stack as in


I think i’m very close to finish. It allready works for Zoomlevel 0-2. But wehen i zoom closer i get the following failour in syslog.

tirex-backend-mapnik: Mapnik config error: Unable to find specified font face ‘’

I belive this is because of a failour in my osm.xml file. I downloaded it

svn co osm-mapnik

In contrast the ./ in this download works fine. So maybe it is a failour in configuring /tirex/renderer/mapnik.conf

i could realy use some help.

Best regards &

Sorry for bugging you I Solved The Problem.


fontdir directly set to /usr/share/fonts/truetype from /usr/share/fonts/

fontdir_recurse =1

I dont know! I thought that fontdir_recurse=1 would find subdirectories.

Best Regards
