intended. You can, also, adjust the time in the crontab or run the
script by running the script like you normally would but I find them
to be frustrating to do in this instance.
## Running the Program
You should not need to run the program manually (after you have set
everything up). With that said, you can make sure the software works
by running the following commands,
```python
# This assumes you have followed the set-up steps above and you are
# not running the code in a virtual environment.
# Adjust the path to match the location of the .py file.
python3 /home/rtrp/repos/light-meter/cli_meter.py
```
There is a GUI program which you can run which runs locally. I used
this for testing and probably have not used it since the very early
stages of developing this project. It basically displays the light
levels on a screen. This requires Raspbain (RaspberryPi OS) to have it
desktop environment installed. To run it,
```python
# This assumes you have followed the set-up steps above and you are
# not running the code in a virtual environment.
# Adjust the path to match the location of the .py file.
python3 /home/rtrp/repos/light-meter/light_meter.py
```
