Hi ,

Looking for a reviewer for a change request  .

Problem statement:
  In UnixPrintJob class while constructing a lpr command to queue up the 
jobs, we are creating tempfile with .ps extension .
The content of the tempfile will not have appropriate postscript 
header[like PSPrinterJob], rather just the data to be printed .
In certain environments[ex., RHEL 6.1]  this causes failure and even the 
native command [lpr] as constructed by Java just queues up the job but 
doesn't prints them.

webrev for the change is available at

Thanks and Regards,
Jayashree Viswanathan
