The org-agenda-transient mode in spacemacs is mapped by default to M-SPC. Since I am running spacemacs in a wsl-g setup, this key is not available, since this is a default key mapping of windows and is not available in wsl-g windows.

I found the configuration of this transient mode in the setup of spacemacs for org, but I could not understand, how it works and how I would remap this. Normally I would remap a key by using a function, but the transient mode is not declared using a function..

Any idea how this could be done without redefining the whole hydra for the transient mode?

After searching org-agenda-transient in Spacemacs, I find that M-SPC is bound to spacemacs/org-agenda-transient-state/body, see these lines.

So spacemacs|define-transient-state will generate a function that ends with /body to activate the transient state. I think you may remap like this (untested):

(with-eval-after-load 'org-agenda
  (evilified-state-evilify-map org-agenda-mode-map
      :mode org-agenda-mode
      (kbd "M-SPC") nil
      (kbd "s-M-SPC") nil
      (kbd "x-x-x") 'spacemacs/org-agenda-transient-state/body))
  • That does not seem to work. I get the following error: "wrong type argument: commandp, spacemacs/org-agenda-transient-state/body"

  • @bombadil Where the config did you put in? Could you try putting it in with-eval-after-load? Dec 20, 2022 at 11:01
  • Yes. I did try this in multiple ways including with-eval-after-load and they all fail in the same way
