  Mine is a Powershot S210 (Ixus V2 in Asia/Pacific). I do it
the hard way - by pulling out the CF card, plugging it in
any of numerous USB->CF adapters available locally, and
copying out all the .jpg images. I use gqview to view/edit
the images, and Gimp for more heavyweight processing (rarely).

  Apparently, Picasa for Linux can detect plugged in cameras,
but I haven't tested it with the Canon.

The last time I checked, Gimp  could not handle "raw" format
