That's a Xfce setting you need to go to: Xfce Settings -> keyboard -> application shortcuts -> double-click the xflock4 entry and press the key combination you desire and press Enter.

I see we have qt4-fsarchiver in MX15/16 but not in MX17. I don't particularly need that but this was one of the package that was added to MX Workbench because it was requested by a user, so it would be nice to add it back to MX17 if it's easy, if not don't bother too much with it.
The new live-usb-maker-gui-antix looks a bit complicated, but worked.
It has more option than the older version, it's also more flexible, let me know how you'd like to simplify/improve it and I will see what I can do.

It does compress, but not to the smallest possible even the one that we use by default on release ISO is not compressing to the smallest possible size, there are always tradeoffs. What's funny is that it looks faster than a sim...
HOLY CRAP! Now I understand why you are promoting lz4 like this, it almost took the tool longer to create a md5 than to compress the entire installation. I don't get it, I didn't even think it's possible to copy so much data so fast (it helps I guess I have SSD) It did create a larger file 2.2GB vs....
Actually you don't need to modify the scripts there's a config file (at least for mx-snapshot) in /etc/mx-snapshot.conf and you just need to use the option --comp lz4 (if mksquashfs supports it, I think it does).
