Flash will not fire when using non-Nikon manual focus lenses on a Nikon D80

Hello – this is my first posting and I’m a DSLR novice. I have a Nikon D80 and various Pentax manual lenses from long ago. Using an adapter I am able to attach the Pentax lenses to the D80 and to use them manually. I have found that with those lenses the D80’s flash will not fire. Is this to be expected? Is there a setting that will allow the camera flash to fire with the Pentax lenses?
