Xscreensaver still works for me, although that's on a desktop with openbox and a few LXDE niceties.  Perhaps it doesn't play well with XFCE, although for the time being I can[t imagine why.  Although it is of course worth knowing if any software, particularly parts of aged DE's like XFCE, aren't working.

Re: xflock4 doesn't lock xcfe4

xflock4 is just a shell script calling some screen lockers, do you have a screen locker installed?
I don't think xfce comes with its own screen locker..

Okay, presumably the xfce4 meta package includes an actual screensaver. I wonder how he got XFCE installed without it therefore, but as someone who runs bits of  LxDE myself I guess I shouldn't be surprised this happens.

You have never needed the screensaver to lock, on other distros like Manjaro never had it and I believe it's all managed by lightdm
