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!
