After I upgraded my [2009] iMac to OSX Lion (a few days ago), the Photo Booth program stopped working. When I click on the icon, all I get is the following error message:

Could it be that Photo Booth expects to be in your /Applications folder? From here it seems like it's on your Desktop. – Wuffers Jul 28 '11 at 2:26

Copy the /System/Library/Frameworks/CoreMedia.framework folder over from your other Mac. If this doesn't work, try moving Photo Booth back into your /Applications folder, or reinstalling Lion.
