That looks like it to me. Connected via the USB bus, and it's already
registered as a standard HID input device. Good news x2!

A very quick google tells me the eGalax device is also in the USB "touch
screen kits" for netbooks.

My next step would be to run evtest[1] on that device and see whether it
spits out usable event data. It's possible the eGalax requires some kind
of special custom calibration routine to be sent to it or something, or
alternatively that this is a new model and the driver doesn't fully
support it yet. However, if you're very lucky then it'll "just work"
pushing out X/Y coordinates, and then all you may need to do is set up
X11 to use it as an input device.

Good luck,
