I found that we can customize LaTeX lists like this (for example):

\begin{itemize}[font=\color{red},label=\ding{43}]
\item item1
\item item2
\end{itemize}

but to have such beautiful lists, we must load the packages

\usepackage[frenchb]{babel}
\usepackage{enumitem}
\usepackage{pifont}

and add this instruction:

\frenchbsetup{StandardLists=true}

My problem is that I do not want to use the frenchb package, I am writing an article in English language. How can I fix this trouble?

Let's break it down:

  • enumitem is used for general customization of lists;
  • pifont is used to get the \ding command;
  • The only thing missing is the color. So simply load xcolor (I suppose that frenchb somehow loads it itself).

tl;dr: This does the trick:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{enumitem}
\usepackage{pifont}
\usepackage{xcolor}

\begin{document}

\begin{itemize}[font=\color{red},label=\ding{43}]
\item item1
\item item2
\end{itemize}

\end{document}
