Thanks a lot for the link: it showed me my mistake, the
projection wasn't properly set (I thought the import was using the
WGS84 but I was wrong. with 900913 it's now ok)
Now with the correct one, it's working (even with the
planet_osm_line table) ! I can now improve my map design skills
I just discovered that there are some beautiful stylesheets
osm-bright that are using OSM data imported in PostGIS. https://github.com/mapbox/osm-bright/
Sorry for such a newby question but they refer to "cascadenik"
templates, and they seems to differ from templates used in tilemill
Is there a way to inherit from such osm-bright templates and use
them in tilemill ? (I tried to use them directly into a new
tilemill project and of course, this does not work).

Cascadenik is in some ways very similar to Carto (the code that
TileMill uses) unfortunately a few key features are incompatible.
Some fairly involved restructuring of the stylesheet would be
required, and I am not aware of any automatic conversion tools.
We don't have plans for a direct port of the Cascadenik version
of OSM Bright to Carto, however a next-gen rewrite with
TileMill compatibility is in development.
Apart from it being incomplete, the main problem with the new
version for you right now is that it expects an OSM database
generated by ImpOSM instead of
osm2pgsql. I do plan to re-add support for osm2pgsql eventually,
but it is not my focus right now.
Thanks for your very detailled answer .
I think I get a better picture about how all those tools can be
I didn't know impOSM (I'm only using osm2pgsql for now), I'll have
a look at it.
