Start Print Timer through OctoPrint

I am using Cura and OctoPrint for my files and find it annoying that the print timer on the Prusa Display doesn't work. I have tried to integrate M75 in the start GCode, but the Prusa Firmware doesn't support this GCode. 

How does Slic3r do the trick? I couldn't find anything in its GCode.

Does anyone have an idea how to solve this problem?

Prusa Slicer uses the M73 command to tell the printer how much time is left.

Thank you. I found that out too. Now I just need to find a plug-in or something to control it.
