The latest version has changed the install directory from '/boot/grub' to '/usr/share'. My GRUB configuration (EFS) is not able to load the theme from this location, and would require me to manually copy the files to the boot partition.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:

Edit /etc/default/grub to point to '/usr/share/grub/themes/Vimix/theme.txt'

Run 'grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg'
Generating grub configuration file ...
Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-linux
Found initrd image: /boot/intel-ucode.img /boot/initramfs-linux.img
Found fallback initrd image(s) in /boot: initramfs-linux-fallback.img
Found Windows Boot Manager on /dev/sdb2@/efi/Microsoft/Boot/bootmgfw.efi

Steps to reproduce:
This task depends upon

Packages should not put stuff in /boot/grub/ .
If you want to use the theme either copy it manually to /boot/grub/themes/ or run grub-install with the option "--themes=ThemeName".
And don't use /usr/share/grub/themes/* in /etc/default/grub, the stuff in /boot/grub/ should be fully self-contained.
