Try \usepackage{tgheros} instead of helvet: the Helvetica font does not come with L7x encoded fonts. – egreg Oct 31 '12 at 20:44
Great. Thanks a lot. – Pavasaris Oct 31 '12 at 20:52

The Lithuanian module for babel requires fonts in the L7x encodings. Not all of the usually available fonts have these, in particular the Helvetica clone provided by \usepackage{helvet}.

However there's TeX Gyre Heros (another Helvetica clone) that has the required fonts, so


should solve your problem. It also has the scale option, so that you can fine tune the appearance with something like


(actually 0.95 is the default).
