First, you need to download updater from Canon website.
If you don't have a previously installed version of DPP, create a following registry key:
Next you must install msxml3 using winetricks:
sh winetricks msxml3
Now you should be able to install DPP using the updater we downloaded earlier.
If there is some problem with the installer, such as a crash, a DPP_install.sh script can be used to install DPP manually.
Problem with "Fit to window"
With wine before 1.3.0 using fit to window caused image to move upwards. This can be solved by patching wine's gdi32.dll with patch from bug #13344.
Problem with the "Tool palette" window
The Tool palette window doesn't stay where you placed it. This can be solved by running winecfg and deselecting the "Allow the window manager to control the windows". This unfortunately doesn't work very well with multiple virtual desktops, because DPP window is shown on all desktops. You can bypass this problem by setting wine to emulate virtual desktop and setting it's size to match your screen size.

Need msxml6 to install the last DPP update
by beduzar on Tuesday March 3rd 2015, 9:41
In order to install DPP 3.14.47 (dppw3.14.47-updater.exe) under Unbuntu 14.04 LTS I needed msxml3 AND msxml6.
Without msxml6 the install freezes with the progress bars remaining at zero for ever.
32 bits. Windows 7 version selected.
While trying to run dpp withe the following command:
$ WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32 wine ~/.wine32/drive_c/Program\ Files/Canon/Digital\ Photo\ Professional/DPPViewer.exe
I get this message:
err:module:load_builtin_dll failed to load .so lib for builtin L"mscms.dll": liblcms2.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
err:module:import_dll Loading library mscms.dll (which is needed by L"C:\\Program Files\\Canon\\Digital Photo Professional\\DPPViewer.exe") failed (error c000007a).

install PDD 3.9.2 French, plus performance tests

Successful installation of Canon DPP 3.9.2 in a dual boot computer, Win XP SP3 and Linux Mint/Mate 17:
- creation of the HKLM register key
- installation of msxml3
- run of the installer file under Wine (Wine DPP392FR.exe)
- the installer crashed at a certain point, but after creating the launcher on the desktop and copying a number of files in the Canon directory in c:\program files.
- copy the files from the Windows XP canon directory into the Wines corresponding directory.
All this has been previously mentioned... What is interesting however, is the performance evaluation. All those that used DPP know it is quite intensive on CPU when doing a batch conversion from CR2 to JPG. I prepared such a job consisting of 17 CR2 files:
- DPP running in same computer booted in Native Windows XP: completed the job in 65 seconds.
- DPP running under Wine, booted in Mint: 85 seconds (30% more time)
- DPP running in a Virtual Machine (VirtualBox 3.16, Win XP SP3), computer booted Linux, with maximum resources possible allocated to the VM: completed the job in 3 minutes 35 seconds... 2.5 times more than under Wine!
Conclusion: for such a CPU intensive program, there is a huge advantage in running it under Wine compared to a VM - it is worth the trouble of going through the Wine installation.
What came in more as a surprize is the performance penalty compared to when the computer is booted in XP - I was expecting it would run faster in Linux. Performance penalty probably caused by Wine overhead...
