1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13
class ApplicationController < ActionController::Base include AuthenticatedSystem before_filter :login_from_cookie # <-- if you use this before_filter :set_current_user # rest of your ApplicationController body protected def set_current_user User.current_user = self.current_user end

Worked like a charm!
