On my system have I installed texlive-lang-lithuanian package and I have
on my machine lithuanian.ldf file (It is placed
on /usr/share/texmf-texlive/tex/latex/lithuanian/lithuanian.ldf , so
told me Synaptic).
I have tried to do this things like set Document>Settings>Language
Lithuanian and without other 
\usepackage{lit...} in the preamble, either to set utf8x. Errors exists.
I can not write Lithuanian texts.
If I use English in settings, I can write this letters - ąčęėįšųūž, LyX
compiles document very well, but Figure is Figure, Part is Part, and I
can not change to right words.
Now I have attached my LyX file : newfile1.lyx with text. Try to set
Lithuanian language and compile.

I don't know whether littex helps -- do you mean a Debian/Ubuntu
package or a LaTeX package (littex.sty). LyX relies on the multilingual
"babel" package. You need to have a file "lithuanian.ldf". In Debian,
it comes with both, "littex" and "texlive-lang-lithuanian".

Try with Document>Settings>Language Lithuanian and without other 
\usepackage{lit...} in the preamble.

The "ASCII" encoding should work. You might also try with utf8x.

Better attach a LyX file so we can experiment.
