It took me a little while to figure out how to get Cucumber working on Rails 3 without its rspec dependancy. Maybe it was me being stupid but hopefully this can help others out too!

In your Gemfile (remember to use upto date versions)

gem 'cucumber-rails', '~> 0.4.0'
gem 'capybara', '~>'
gem 'database_cleaner', '~> 0.6.6'

Then run

rails g cucumber:install --testunit --capybara

Once I did that I no longer had my Cucumber throwing a wobbler that it couldn’t find rspec!
