Interesting---so I downgraded the libraries, and I also ran gnome-screenshot as root, and it looks like I still the same error message: (gnome-screenshot:916): DEBUG: The GetProfileForWindow request failed: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ExecFailed: Failed to execute program /usr/bin/gcm-session: Success

I did ppa-purge when this first came up. It fixed most of my problems except it didn't change libglib2 because of the dependencies described above.

It's an upgrade from 11.04. But you're right, it looks like a widely reported, and widely unfixed bug. bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/eog/+bug/880227 bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/eog/+bug/881581 lists.launchpad.net/desktop-packages/msg40805.html

Yep, good point. I had poor diagnostics and was looking incorrectly---it was there the whole time. Thanks!
