I suffer from the same symptom using OpenSuse 13.1 with digikam build
14.1.0-1.11. Sometimes I can open further dialogs if I act quickly, but there
is no way to select the folder I want to use. Seems to be a broken build -
hangs in Qt calls. Same problem in all other dialogs of the digikam settings.

I solved this by using an older kde settings file with collection information
included. But whenever I enter the settings digikam slows down and freezes apr.
30 seconds later.

In the generated db the settings table is filled with some "prealpha" settings
... all other tables are empty.

I remember  there where similar problems with 3.x versions - but I was able to
finish setup many attempts and by hacking the settings-file. After that I
reused the settings on all workstations where digikam is installed.
Unfortunately I have to do a clean install for 4.1.0 now.

Questions that might help me with a similar bug:
- what is the source of your digikam package (Status beta?) 
- do you use mysql or mariadb ?
- what distro ?
- nvidia native driver?
- large filesystems (> 1 TB) with many folders?
- do you use high resolution mode (> 1920x1080) or multiple monitors?
