Rspec not loading fixtures

I am taking over a code base and am trying to run the tests. I am
somewhat new to RSpec so this might be a trivial problem.

Basically I can tell that the fixtures are not getting loaded. All 100
tests fail with a similar error.

But I don’t know why. Below is the code, with my narrative with ***
before it… Can you see anything or give me a clue where to look. So
far I am coming up empty…

Thanks!

**** In spec_helper.rb, which I know is running, I see:

Spec::Runner.configure do |config|
config.global_fixtures = :all
end

**** One of the tests in spec/controllers/downloads_controller_spec.rb
is below. I know it is running and I know that before the ‘describe’,
Partner.count == 0, so no fixture.

require File.expand_path(File.dirname(FILE) + ‘/…/spec_helper’)

describe DownloadsController do
integrate_views

describe “when PDF is ready” do
before(:each) do
@registrant = Factory.create(:step_5_registrant)
stub(@registrant).merge_pdf { touch #{@registrant.pdf_file_path}
}
@registrant.generate_pdf
@registrant.save!
end

it "provides a link to download the PDF" do
  get :show, :registrant_id => @registrant.to_param
  assert_not_nil assigns[:registrant]
  assert_response :success
  assert_template "show"
  assert_select "span.button a[target=_blank]"
  assert_select "span.button a[onclick]"
end

after(:each) do
  `rm #{@registrant.pdf_file_path}`
end

end

**** And here is what in various directories:
