I am trying to manually run `xinit` so that I can use Emacs X Window
Manager (EXWM).  I have EXWM configured in my Emacs configuration file.
I have a small number of important graphical applications I want to run
in EXWM (web browser, Jami, qTox, ...).

If I run `emacs` from a virtual terminal in the *Messages* buffer it
says "[EXWM] Not running under X environment".

I am currently working without `xorg` in virtual terminals or in Emacs
with `emacsclient --tty`.  I am really appreciating `eww` as a browser
that is in Emacs.
