Here are my results, the overall impression is pretty bad. The only live distro I could lock the screen is Kali with its default password.

  • Knoppix: No password whatsoever, so not possible to lock (or unlock!). See http://www.linux-magazine.com/Online/Features/Getting-Started-with-Knoppix-7.3
  • Grml: No integrate screen locker, no xlock.
  • Jondo: Ask for user password on boot, then I didn't find a way of locking the screen. No xlock.
  • LPS: No integrated screenlocker, nothing in the user guide. No xlock.
  • Kali: Lock screen through GNOME and the default password (toor).
  • Elive: Graphical problem in libvirt. Don't start from USB either, no documentation. Couldn't test.
  • Tanglu: Lock screen through GNOME and the default password (live).
  • Debian Live: Lock screen through GNOME and the default password (live).
