customize color of bootstrap buttons

How can I change the buttons to custom colors on the bootstrap buttons.  I would like to over ride the "success", "danger" etc. colors but can not figure out what code in the stylesheets will do this.

It starts on line 2126 of Bootstrap.css with these entries that define linear gradients to cover various web browsers as well as what to do on hover, etc. Following these entries there are more for the other buttons:
.btn-primary {
  color: #ffffff;
  text-shadow: 0 -1px 0 rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.25);
  background-color: #006dcc;
  background-image: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #0088cc, #0044cc);
  background-image: -webkit-gradient(linear, 0 0, 0 100%, from(#0088cc), to(#0044cc));
  background-image: -webkit-linear-gradient(top, #0088cc, #0044cc);
  background-image: -o-linear-gradient(top, #0088cc, #0044cc);
  background-image: linear-gradient(to bottom, #0088cc, #0044cc);
  background-repeat: repeat-x;
  filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr='#ff0088cc', endColorstr='#ff0044cc', GradientType=0);
  border-color: #0044cc #0044cc #002a80;
  border-color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.1) rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.1) rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.25);
  *background-color: #0044cc;
  /* Darken IE7 buttons by default so they stand out more given they won't have borders */

  filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(enabled = false);
.btn-primary[disabled] {
  color: #ffffff;
  background-color: #0044cc;
  *background-color: #003bb3;
.btn-primary:active, {
  background-color: #003399 \9;
