(define-key evil-normal-state-map (kbd "C b") 'buffer-menu)

This obviously gives Key sequence starts with non-prefix key But I don't know what I need to unset to make it work.

    If you mean C-b in both the title and the question body, please edit it to say that. C-b is Control + b. C b is Shift + c followed by b.

You're missing a dash between "C b", unless that's a typo.

C-hkC tells me:

C runs the command evil-change-line (found in evil-normal-state-map),
which is an interactive compiled Lisp function in ‘evil-commands.el’.

It is bound to C.

(evil-change-line BEG END &optional TYPE REGISTER YANK-HANDLER)

Change to end of line.

That is the non-prefix binding for C which you would need to unset.

  • Thanks for your answer, but I meant pressing control and then pressing b Mar 18, 2017 at 8:59
  • In that case your problem is that you wrote (kbd "C b") when you should have written (kbd "C-b")

    Oh, you want Ctrl to act like a regular key rather than a modifier key? Emacs doesn't recognise any input at all when you press a modifier key by itself, so you can't do that unless you make changes at the operating system level (i.e. outside of Emacs) to stop Ctrl from being a modifier. (Chances are that you don't want to do that, though.)
