Since you're on debian, try:

dpkg-query -s emacs22-nox


dpkg-query -s emacs22-gtk

The Status: output line of those commands should contain "installed"
for the package that's currently installed (only one of them may be
installed at the same time).

Alternatively, you can try to install emacs22-gtk, which will replace
the emacs22-nox package if that's currently installed:

apt-get update
apt-get install emacs22-gtk
