By default, the X version of emacs uses black text in a white background
and the console version uses white text in a black background (I don't
what does it do if the console background is white).

When you run it from a menu or from the file manager, you're probably
running the X version. You can either install emacs22-nox to get rid of
the X version or you can read through 'info emacs' and find out what X
resources you need to touch in order to get the color combination you
want (I remember Emacs.background being for background, but don't know
about text).
