Personally, I love the control that I get when using the stand-alone version of Cura (it's free). Make sure to set the printer profile in that for your printer and firmware.

Slice in Cura and upload the gcode file to OctoPrint and everything should be happy.

When you say "the problem is the same in Cura", do you mean "the stand-alone Cura" or the "Cura plugin within OctoPrint"? I'm suggesting that you slice this in the stand-alone application called Cura.

If the stand-alone Cura isn't working, try explaining to us what is happening. Since we can't see your computer or your software, we're in the dark here.

"It doesn't slice as well"

What exactly do you mean by this? How is it different (poorer) than your earlier Repetier slicer? As they say, "a picture is worth a thousand words".
