KDE Virtual Desktops

Does anyone know how to alter the number of virtual desktops without using a GUI? Surely there is a configuration file somewhere where this can be changed, but I can't find it. I thought it would be in ~/.kde/share/config, and I did find the file minipager_panelapplet_5d7ynahzk0wbe8mzuu3n_rc. However, the contents are just:
This looks like the file that should contain the settings, but it doesn't. I've heard this file is actually generated with each new session, but I haven't checked. Also, in kwinrc I found a section like this:
But this data seems to be updated only when kwin is re-executed. For instance, if I used the KDE Kicker "Mini Pager" applet and lowered my virtual desktops to 2 and then run kwin --replace that section becomes:
So, this section also seems to be irrelevant to what I am trying to accomplish... Does anyone know how to do this without using the Mini Pager applet's graphical interface?

Also, I don't think this would affect the location of this file, but I'm using Kubuntu (KDE Ubuntu). Any help is appreciated even if it's not Kubuntu-related.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Why do you not think the kwinrc file is not the one. Reason I ask it is because it says Number=2. If you edit this file before starting X server does it do what you want?
