Hi Af73rSh0ck, Is this a Fedora 9 install as stated in your profile? Could you post the exact error? Have you checked to see if the process is still running?
Good luck. ;-)

This is exactly what it says: There was an error running "Gnome-Screenshot": Failed to execute child process "gnome-screenshot"(No such file or directory).

Yes, this is in Fedora 9

Start a terminal and type this command.
Code:
gnome-panel-screenshot --window --delay 5
No need to apologize, we all started somewhere. ;-)
Good luck. ;-)

Check for the gnome-utils package and install it if not present. Here is a package management guide for Fedora 9.
Good luck. ;-)
