You need to install dconf-tools
When installed, open dconf-editor
from Menu > System Tools -
Click down arrow next to org, click on
cinnamon, in right pane scroll down to number-workspaces
Click on the line to right of number-workspaces (twice), enter number required, press enter
and that command line is accepted but does nothing.
Again, you have to restart cinnamon to see the change.
