I recently spent a day trying to figure out why my theme was failing, until I discovered that fonts in /boot/grub2/fonts are not seen.

After moving them to the /boot/grub2/themes/theme_name directory it works.

Seems very odd that the fonts directory is not searched automaically for fonts. :\

It would be nice if GRUB would be able automatically load fonts from /boot/grub/fonts/ directory.
Theme management will be more simple and handy.
