I'm having problem with using gnome-screenshot in awesome wm. Here's the screenshot.

using gnome-screenshot

I'm using awesome wm and my linux distro is Ubuntu 12.04. I have no idea how to solve this and what causes this.

Btw, when invoking the command, in Ubuntu 12.04 account, not in awesome wm

gnome-screenshot -a

There's no error at all.
