How to use old manual lenses w/ K-r?

I have a bunch of old K-mount lenses that I used to use on a Pentax MX. How do I set up the K-r to use these as manual focus lenses?

Some results can e.g be seen here

https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-slr-lens-discussion/31601-takumar-club.html

Only 389 pages with mostly photos.

And another 15 pages in https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-slr-lens-discussion/50994-m42-crew.html

And shooting with manual lenses makes that I enjoy photography again.
