Ask HN: How to sell apps on Linux?

Hi HN,
With the recent major advancements of Linux phones and tablets, convergence becoming a reality, I was wondering:

How to make a living creating apps for Linux, whether it be for the Desktop or the phones?

Do you have any experience or examples you want to share?

Are in-app subscriptions and enterprise support the only way to go? As the usual distribution channels (repositories and ‘App Stores’) don’t seem to provide a straightforward way to sell software.
