I have my Raspberry Pi hooked up to 16 x 2 character display the date on launch.
The display has a i2c module on the
I have placed this in crontab (without the sudo thingy, so user) :
@reboot sudo python /home/pi/myFolder/DisplayFirst.py
This runs this python file:
import pylcdlib import time display = pylcdlib.lcd() display.lcd_clear() g = time.strftime('%I:%M:%S %p') display.writeBlock(g)
However this displays the time from when the raspberry pi was last turned on.
