I don't have a Pentax, but I use a memory card reader for my Olympus.
I find it easier to mount, download photos then use gqview to 
view and gimp to edit.  Just make sure you mount it with the 
mount_msdosfs command.
Here is what I have done.

In the /etc/sysctl.conf file I have the following lines:
# user mounts devices

In the /usr/local/etc/sudoers file I have the following:
# Defaults specification
Defaults env_reset
Defaults timestamp_timeout=0
Defaults tty_tickets
Defaults requiretty
Defaults passwd_timeout=1
# User privilege specification
user_me  ALL=/sbin/umount,\

In my home directory, I have created a directory call

I am in the wheel group.

The command is
sudo mount_msdosfs /dev/da?s1 ~/mount/camera
replace the ? with your device number.

I hope this helps...I am sure there are many other ways to do this.
