Before getting into customizing TexWorks--  are you using a dark theme 
for other text-based applications?  What happens in a terminal window?  
What happens in a different text editor?

If all of the above are dark and hard to read (which is a common fault 
with dark window themes) you need to customize the window theme in Manjaro.

If other text applications look fine, Texworks can be  customized with a 
.css file.  I can outline the procedure I used if you find you need to 
go that route.
