Thanks for the comment, the ASIAIR runs on raspbian, according to cat /etc/os-release:

PRETTY_NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux 10 (buster)" NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux" VERSION_ID="10" VERSION="10 (buster)" VERSION_CODENAME=buster ID=raspbian ID_LIKE=debian HOME_URL="http://www.raspbian.org/" SUPPORT_URL="http://www.raspbian.org/RaspbianForums" BUG_REPORT_URL="http://www.raspbian.org/RaspbianBugs"

I already looked at it a bit, it looks like getting INDI drivers on ubuntu is super easy, but for raspbian it's slightly more difficult and you need to compile it yourself, I tried that, but it looks like there are some currently installed packages that doesn't match the required packages that I need, and it's giving me some trouble.

As for what you said in the beginning about removing the existing INDI stack and then install a new one, I wonder if that would really solve this issue, I don't know if some files might be missing and that's the reason these drivers are not showing up, or maybe it's something else. These are all the files I have in /usr/share/indi:
-rwxr--r--   1 pi   pi   22465 Mar 11  2020 drivers.xml -rw-r--r--   1 pi   pi    2995 Feb  3  2020 indi_align_sk.xml -rw-r--r--   1 pi   pi     274 Feb  3  2020 indi_avalon.xml -rw-r--r--   1 pi   pi    2773 Feb  3  2020 indi_eqmod_scope_limits_sk.xml -rw-r--r--   1 pi   pi    2682 Feb  3  2020 indi_eqmod_simulator_sk.xml -rw-r--r--   1 pi   pi   12218 Feb  3  2020 indi_eqmod_sk.xml -rw-r--r--   1 pi   pi     282 Feb  3  2020 indi_eqmod.xml -rw-r--r--   1 pi   pi     486 Feb  3  2020 indi_starbook_telescope.xml -rw-r--r--   1 pi   pi    1385 Feb  3  2020 indi_tcfs_sk.xml

This is the content of drivers.xml:
pastebin.com/5QcdbwJx

So clearly all(or most) of the non ZWO drivers are there, the question is how do they filter which drivers they want to use, do I possibly need a dedicated xml file for the focusers?
I'll try to further read and look up on how to INDI library is working, maybe I'll even set it up on an ubuntu VM to try and see.

​​​​​​​Thanks for the help.
