I've read about changing the shape of the itemize bullet in the Beamer class documentation and also on this question which shows how to change the bullet shape to a checkmark (\checkmark).

Where can I find the complete list of the bullet shapes available for the Beamer class?

Do you change it for one itemize or the whole document? Since you can use nearly every symbol here is a list showing a lot of them: tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/info/symbols/comprehensive/symbols-a4.pdf –  Rico Jan 15 '13 at 9:29
    
I would like to change it for the whole document.. Thanks for the list! :) –  tmaric Jan 15 '13 at 9:36

Take a look at pifont package which includes the environment \begin{dinglist}{number} where number can be any of the ones listed here –  JLDiaz Jan 15 '13 at 9:37

You'll find those predefined templates in the documentation. Here are those which are listed in the guide (Chap. 12 Structuring a Presentation: The Local Structure p. 111)

\documentclass{beamer}

\def\mf{
\begin{itemize}
\item Item
\end{itemize}
}

\begin{document}
\frame{
\setbeamertemplate{itemize items}[default]
\mf
\setbeamertemplate{itemize items}[triangle]
\mf
\setbeamertemplate{itemize items}[circle]
\mf
\setbeamertemplate{itemize items}[square]
\mf
\setbeamertemplate{itemize items}[ball]
\mf}
\end{document}

Furthermore you can define your very own items:

\documentclass{beamer}

\def\mf{
\begin{itemize}
\item Item
\end{itemize}
}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usetikzlibrary{shapes.misc}

\begin{document}
\frame{
\setbeamertemplate{itemize items}{\tikz\node[cross out, draw] {good};}
\mf
\setbeamertemplate{itemize items}{$\int$}
\mf
}
\end{document}

enter image description here
