I have installed fedora 17 lxde. Print screen button is not working. no screenshot is either saving in picture folder and even no sound of taking screenshot is coming. Is this a bug ? how about other interfaces ? is that working in others ?

look at your shortcut settings. It is by default "Shift + Prtsc".

I was having the same issue, I found an app the the repositories called "Screengrab" that replaces this functionality. Install screengrab, then run it. Go to > Options > Shortcuts > Fill Screen (set hotkey to your Print Screen button or whatever you want.) Works fine for me.
