How can I change the work-space I am currently on using terminal?

Using dconf editor, I have set the dynamic work-space option to false. And have 4 work-spaces as a result. I want to be able to switch between them without the keyboard shortcuts, so that a script can do those for me?

I finally achieved this using the wmctrl command.

sudo apt-get install wmctrl

wmctrl -d

gave me output:

0  - DG: 1366x768  VP: N/A  WA: 0,30 1366x738  Workspace 1
1  - DG: 1366x768  VP: N/A  WA: 0,30 1366x738  Workspace 2
2  * DG: 1366x768  VP: 0,0  WA: 0,30 1366x738  Workspace 3
3  - DG: 1366x768  VP: N/A  WA: 0,30 1366x738  Workspace 4

to get to workspace 0, the command is

wmctrl -s 0
