In the camera's menu look for an option called something along the lines of "using aperture ring" and set it to "permitted" instead of "prohibited". You should then be able to use the lenses in manual mode, and you can check light levels using the green button near the on/off switch.

You may find this link useful, though it also covers other subjects.

Welcome to the forums Manuel!
Good luck on your new K-x.
Old lenses should work fine on them, event the Takumar screw type (M-42) lenses with the appropriate adapter.
