Qt / Qt4 is the default, plain, graphical, interface to VLC, made using the Qt library (linux users may need to have this installed). It is used as the default interface on the Windows and Linux versions of VLC media player from version 0.9.0 and up.
vlc -I qt
If Qt4 is not avaliable, it will probably revert to using the rc (console) interface, even if you force it. The most likely reason for this is if Qt4 hasn't been installed, or if it wasn't linked in (using the ./configure). See compiling VLC  for information on compiling.
