I'm switching to i3 window manager. I want to use the indicator-sync tool from within that desktop environment, but I couldn't find the executable for it. Where is it? Thanks in advance.

update: I've found /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/indicator-sync/indicator-sync-service, but it fails with the followin error when called from command line:

libindicator-WARNING **: No watchers, service timing out.
