I get the following error when I try to render tiles using Mapnik with standard style.

RuntimeError: Failed to find font face 'unifont Medium' in FontSet 'book-fonts' in FontSet at line 5 of '/home/mapnik/osm.xml'

I use fedora 22 and I have installed "unifont" package, I tested it using the following command:

[root@...]$ ls python -c "import mapnik;print mapnik.fontscollectionpath" default dejavu unifont

any help appreciated!

Found it!
In inc/fontset-settings.xml.inc.template replace "unifont Medium" with "Unifont Medium"

You appear to be using some very old stylesheets, that's not the "Standard" style any more. The current stylesheet is found at https://github.com/gravitystorm/openstreetmap-carto
