Bug Description

Capturing websites often timeout.

I tested it with getdeb.net but also en.wikipedia.org timeouts.
With google.de I could not reproduce it that often.

shutter:
  Installed: 0.85.1-1~getdeb1
  Candidate: 0.85.1-1~getdeb1
  Version table:
 *** 0.85.1-1~getdeb1 0
        500 http://archive.getdeb.net karmic-getdeb/apps Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     0.80.1-1 0
        500 http://de.archive.ubuntu.com karmic/universe Packages
     0.80.1-1~getdeb1 0
        500 file: ./ Packages

(It is a rebuild of 0.85.1~ppa3 for getdeb.net)

Have you tried to configure the timeout? (see attachment)

Yes, and I waited several minutes.

Shutter is using gnome-web-photo for this task. You might want to test it via terminal:

gnome-web-photo --mode=photo --format=png getdeb.net output.png

I get the same results here. Some webpages (e.g. getdeb.net) timeout very often while other websites (e.g. google.com, ubuntu.com) can be captured more reliably.

There are already some bugs filed against gnome-web-photo that might be interesting:

This one describes the problem very well:
