This have been covered before; you probably missed it.  Go to CCSM >
General Options > Desktop Size and change the "Horizontal Size" to the
number of desktops you require.  If it is grayed out then you have an
issue with CCSM, either is is not loaded or some option in it is set to
prevent certain actions, i.e., multiple desktops.
Good luck!
