The only font in the tar.gz file is unifont-regular-16 but theme.txt sets unifont 35. I had to change each mention of "Unifont Regular 35" to "Unifont Regular 16" in theme.txt to make theme works. After that, it worked like a charm.

How to install a grub theme:

  1. Extract the theme to /boot/grub/themes/

  2. Edit /etc/default/grub file. Find the line starting with "#GRUB_THEME" and change it to "GRUB_THEME=/boot/grub/themes/[THEME_FOLDER]/[theme.txt]" (replace [THEME_FOLDER] ; [theme.txt] is probably OK ; remove "[]" brackets)

  3. Run sudo update-grub
