CSS Question

How to change the background-color of jumbrotron?

I want to know how to change the background-color of 'jumbotron' class, it has a default

background-color #eee
in bootstrap.css.

I tried to override by erasing this and giving the attribute
none !important
into my custom css and still doesn't work.

I tried inspecting the element in the browser window and removing the property there to see if there was any change, it's still the same problem.

It will adopt any other color, except removing the color entirely. The reason I'm asking this is because I have a full background image and want jumbotron to simply transparent with no background or color to it. Unless,

I'm missing something from the BootStrap 3.1.1 documentation in which I checked there as well.

NOTE: I would use to easily show you, but it doesn't support 3.1.1 and not sure how to implement bootstrap into it.

CSS (w/ bootstrap.css)

@import url("bootstrap.min.css");
@import url("bootstrap-theme.css");

body {
margin-top: 50px; /* 50px is the height of the navbar - change this if the navbarn height changes */

.full {
/*background: url( no-repeat center center fixed;*/
background: url("../images/laser_keyboard.jpg") no-repeat center center fixed;
-webkit-background-size: cover;
-moz-background-size: cover;
-o-background-size: cover;
background-size: cover;

color: #FFFFFF;
/*background-color:none !important;*/


Just remove class full from <html> and add it to <body> tag. Then set style background-color:transparent !important; for the Jumbotron div (as Amit Joki said in his answer).
