Qt5.5 QtPositioning PositionSource unable to load due to missing symbols

I’ve slowly been working on a “Magic Mirror” for a long time now, trying to pick up some new technologies and making something fun. I’ve been working with Qt on and off for the last 10 years or so, but only peripherally, looking and awing over what they do. QML is absolutely awesome in my humble opinion.

A few weeks ago I started using Qt5.5 and ran into some issues executing the Magic mirror in a qmlscene now that I continued the project. It was fairly easy to reproduce but it seems to only affect the Qt binaries I’ve installed from the installer downloaded from qt.io. I’ve had verification that the code works with packages built from source, and trying to verify this on my own as well right now (building as we speak).

This is the sample code not working with qmlscene:

import QtPositioning 5.5
import QtQuick 2.0

Rectangle {
id: root

PositionSource {
id: positionSource
}
}

Bug is reported to qt.io here: https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-50227
