Why do you want change the 'estimated time' ?

IMHO the 'estimated time' depend only of the size of the package, and can't be changed : it's a measure of time to download the package, and therefore it give an idea of an delay

- 'there is a package' to run

- download of package (= N fragments in 'estimated time')

- rebuild package (this is quick)

- run the package

I'm trying to download a package but I don't know why, it's still in the status 'WAITING NOTIFICATION".

I checked the ocs documentation and it's say the reason is because the "Server is waiting for agent communication to notify there is something to download." 

the problem is that I don't know how to restart the agent communication so that he can do that.

It's another question !

For Windows, the more simpler is to run systray application (when you install you have ability to run systray when computer start) : with systray it's easy to start agent (even you are not local administrator). Else the agent is a service, so it could run more than once a day ... else you can launch 'ocsinventory-agent' (with '/force').

For Linux, see crontab or simply run 'ocsinventory-agent' (I suggest set a logfile and use --debug)

I launched ocsinventory-agent with force but it still doesn't change the status.

Do you know something about the plugin 'listprinters' ?
It's this plugin that I am trying to get working

Are you sure you do everything : activating package, affect package to computers ?

Did you try manually download the package ?

Did you read ALL log files (for agent and on server) ?

I did everything : I actived the package, I affected to my computer and I also tried to download the package manually and restart the ocs inventory agent with force but it doesn't change anything.

What is it about the log files ? What I am suppose to see in there?

For Linux, you indicate the log in the line 'logfile=' in cfg files.

For Windows, the log files is %programdata%\OCS Inventory NG\Agent\ocsinventory.log. Also you have 'download.log' about details for package.
