Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Normaly you have somekind of applet in the task bar that changes the virtual desktop. It is called "pager" under KDE. It simply has little boxes which corrispond to the desktops. If yours are missing then right click on the task bar and select add -> applet -> pager. If you are talking about the vitual terminals rather than desktops they can be got to by pressing ctrl + alt + [F number].
What I am looking for is a way of changing between virtual desktops using a comand line command. I use an old laptop running Linux to display information on the computers in the office. I want to be able to write a script that will allow me to switch to a different page of information without getting up!
