It seems that switchdesk-gui is not installed on your machine.

If you want to have GUI switchdesk you have to install switchdesk-gui
subpackage. But the commandline switchdesk should allow you to switch
desktop too.

just Type: switchdesk KDE. For more info please take a look  
in man page

I understand that. But people that are completly new to linux and does
not know what a "command prompt" is, just that it is some mysterius
thing that looks a bit like DOS, won't...
