This is great news.

I obviously can't test this from here, but it looks like if you go to Edit -> 
Preferences and look at Playback Device and Recording Device, you ought to 
find your device on the list.  I'm not sure what the actual text will say, 
but I bet it's human-readable.

Audacity is probably good enough for your purposes, but if you want to play 
records live, I can't think of a likely way to do that unless you use JACK to 
route the audio input from the record player to the audio output on whatever 
soundcard you normally use.  (Well, unless you use a physical audio cable to 
connect them, if that is an option.)

JACK is a pretty huge subject, and I would encourage you to seek out the 
Ubuntu Studio Users list, or the Linux Audio Users list for further help with 
that.  First, I would encourage you to just get started with Audacity, and 
see what happens from there.

Good luck!
