It should "just work".  You can either trigger it by entering the slock
command in a terminal emulator or by setting up a keyboard shortcut,
desktop icon, whatever, in your window manager of choice that executes
the slock command for you.  To get it to unlock, just type in the
password for the user account logged in to X before you locked the X
Window System display and hit Enter.

For more about slock and other options for locking your screen, you can
check out this article:

    Lock Your Screen While Away From The Computer

I hope that helps.
