The program vDesktopTools supports switching the virtual desktop to the desktop indexed by the first argument. (counting from 0)

The program sited supports switching a virtual desktop to the right by default. With any argument it switches one to the left.
(Thanks sited for giving her name.)

The number of desktops and number of the currently selected one are displayed.


This should work with all EWMH-complient windowmanagers.
