I am trying to define an abbreviation for helm-mini, I would like d to expand to *dired. When I try my usual way of *dired C-x a i l, I get an error saying Command attempted to use minibuffer while in minibuffer.

    Setting or binding enable-recursive-minibuffers to non-nil will let you bypass that error. Whether that's what you need here or should use, I don't know. – Drew Dec 3 '18 at 23:54

  • I have a follow up question on this. The abbrev is getting defined for a fundamental mode, does this mean that the minibuffer is of fundamental mode? Is it possible to restrict this only to buffers created by helm-mini? – A. Blizzard Dec 4 '18 at 19:02
  • Please post a followup question as a separate question. And provide a recipe or otherwise make clear just what you mean. Thx. – Drew Dec 4 '18 at 19:22
