Problem with Java printing from AIX

I have a prgram that prints a JeditorPane to a Printer. Its workin fine in windows environment. I can print to most of the printers from Windows. But when I go to AIX 5.2 printing is not in a desired format. It seems that the printer prints a PostScript Datastream, treating it as a ASCII stream. I am guessing so, because of the print output starts from %! ps-3 adobe ..... which is the PostScript header. I have read that, Windows and MacOS has the PostScript Driver (Available in Adobe), which might interprete the PS datastream with printer driver. Is there any GhostScript Driver available for AIX 5.2?? Or is it there any other way that I can get rid of this problem?? really appriciate a quick response.....
