Choosing proper Lewis acid


So,which lewis acid to chose in adition of hydrogen sulfide to ketones
Eg. H2S+C3H6O=[(CH3)2CS]3+H2O
I have readen about TiCl4 but don't know if it's geometrical structure corresponds to this reaction.

Never thought about thionating agent,i will try with phosphorous pentasulfide as I can't acces lawessons reagent.It should work but with longer preparation time and lower yield.Thanks.
