Not getting AF with my 50mm Nikkor on D5000 body

I have a practically new Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D AF lens that will AF great on my D7000 and D7200, but just tried it on my D5000 and it's not giving me focus. I thought this was a compatible lens with the D5000. Anyone run into this? No issues with my Nikkor 55-300, 18-140, and 18-55.

EDIT: ahhh, forgot the D5000 does not have the in body focus motor. Appears I need a AF-S lens. Is manual focus an option?
