I've had the pdf viewers work with these nvidia drivers before, then a few
months back they stopped working. I've avoided dealing with the problem by
using chrome to view pdfs but that's getting old.

About this laptop it's a bios switch to use either the gtx 1070 or the
intel gpu
vgapci0_at_pci0:1:0:0: class=0x030000 card=0x6a021558 chip=0x1ba110de rev=0xa1
    vendor     = 'NVIDIA Corporation'
    device     = 'GP104M [GeForce GTX 1070]'
    class      = display
    subclass   = VGA

hw.machine: amd64
hw.model: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU _at_ 2.60GHz
hw.ncpu: 8
hw.machine_arch: amd64

I havent had time to try the kmod drivers yet, maybe i'll install that
port, disable the nvidia-drivers, make the switch in the gpu and try again.
