Unhappy Arch Linux: Goclipse not compiling Go Code

Hello everyone,

I have 2 machines, a netbook (ASUS 1015PEM) running Xubuntu 14.04, and a Virtual Machine running Arch Linux.

Now for school I have to program in Google Go and tried setting up the GoClipse Plugin for Eclipse.
I've followed these instructions:

Eclipse Go Settings:

Go to Window-> Preferences
Select Go
GOROOT: /usr/lib/go
GOPATH: /usr/share/go
Go-tool path: /usr/bin/go
Go formatter: /usr/bin/gofmt
Go documentor: /usr/bin/godoc


These setting are working fine on my Netbook, but when I try putting in the same settings in the Arch machine and try running even a simple hello world program I get following error:

go install: no install location for directory outside GOPATH

I've tried just about everything and I'm out of ideas....
Any help would be much appreciated

Best Regards


(P.S.: I wasn't sure if this is a programming post or software, because IMO the software isn't working)
