I have tried to search for it in my home directory and my .minecraft directory without any success. find / -name terrain.png also outputs nothing.

"terrian.png"? Did you make that typo when searching for it, or is this just a typo in your question? – Kotsu Aug 15 '11 at 4:50
Have you tried looking in the .jar files? If it's in there, find won't find it. If you have trouble opening the .jar, I know for sure that 7zip can do it. However, I think that 7zip for linux is command line only. – Fambida Aug 15 '11 at 6:02
@Kotsu sorry it was just in the title. I fixed it. Thanks for the heads up. – Stefan Bossbaly Aug 15 '11 at 6:20

~/.minecraft/bin/minecraft.jar - it's inside the jar archive. If you use a texturepack, then it's in its zip file in ~/.minecraft/texturepacks instead. For more info take a look here.
