Which model of Aspire One ? .. I'm typing this right now from an Aspire One AOA110L (aka. zg5) running Peppermint 4 32bit

By the looks of that:
http://reviewlaptopnetbook.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/netbook-acer-aspire-one-n214.html
it's pretty much the same as the zg5 except with a hard drive in place of the SSD, and 1Gb RAM.

So everything should "pretty much" just work in Peppermint .. there are a few caveats to that, such as one of the card readers, getting the fan under control, and the mic in Skype .. but they're covered here:
