I wonder if that is really what the parent poster meant. Look at what
he writes:

That sentence, "I can just start to type my command and it will
automatically appear in the mini-buffer." confuses me. I mean, he just
can't do that, he has to type M-x first. Is he maybe using Viper mode?
It will be interesting to see what he really meant, when he hopefully
reports back here. :)
