unit tests fail with acts_as_paranoid

I thought I had things set up right but now I'm not certain. I
installed the acts_as_paranoid plugin, added acts_as_paranoid just
under my class definition:

class Foo < ActiveRecord::Base
  acts_as_paranoid
.
.
.
end

...and added "require_gem 'acts_as_paranoid'" to the bottom of my
environment.rb.

The problem is when I run my unit tests I get a mess of errors similar
to this one:

  3) Error:
test_destroy(CodeAlertResultTest):
NoMethodError: undefined method `scoped_methods=' for Foo:Class
    /usr/lib64/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activerecord-1.14.4/lib/

    /usr/lib64/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/acts_as_paranoid-0.3.1/lib/

    /usr/lib64/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activerecord-1.14.4/lib/
active_record/fixtures.rb:548:in `setup'

Every unit test fails with this "undefined method `scoped_methods='
for Foo:Class" error. This is my first time working with AAP so I'm
not sure what's going on. Any advice and suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Jason,

No need to require_gem 'acts_as_paranoid' in your environment.rb.
It's not a gem, it's a plugin and will be automatically loaded into
the environment.

The gem is ancient! My rubyforge script broke a long time ago, (gems
are such a pain to push automatically), and then this neat new 'rails
plugin' feature came out, and I haven't looked back since :slight_smile:

Thanks for the tips. I removed the require_gem line from
environment.rb but now I'm getting a method_missing error:

Any idea what else might be missing here?

Did you install the plugin?
