Sometimes, for some strange reason, distributions compile and install
non graphic emacs.

Either you'll find a way to configure your distribution to provide a X
emacs, or just download the sources yourself, and compile them with X
enabled.  It takes less than 5 minutes.

There are defaults stored in various places.  One is ~/.Xresources,
another is ~/.emacs ; if you get different settings when launching
emacs with or with -Q, then they could come from site global
initialization files (depends on the distribution).
