I don't have any experience with the device you linked to, but the
following links suggest that it is possible with at least some similar

It looks like there are a few different types of device out there and if
it was me I'd be buying from a cheaper source like:

However I've not personally used any of them so I'm not recommending any
of them and most of them seem to be shipping from the Far East and will
take a while to reach you.

The upsides of Amazon are faster delivery and if you order from them and
can't get it to work with Linux within a reasonable time you are likely to
be able to return it.

If you do order something I'd be interested to hear how you get on.
