You have to process your document once with pdflatex, then once with biber and then twice again with pdflatex.

With this example (modified from the linked question to use beamer):

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage[style=verbose]{biblatex}

\usepackage{filecontents}% to embed the file myreferences.bib in your .tex file
\begin{filecontents*}{myreferences.bib}
@online{foo12,
year = {2012},
title = {footnote-reference-using-european-system},
url = {http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/69716/footnote-reference-using-european-system},
}
\end{filecontents*}

% File is created and written to disk by the above package
\addbibresource{myreferences.bib}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
Some text.\footnote{Some text in a footnote.} Some more text.\footcite{foo12}
\end{frame}

\begin{frame}
\printbibliography
\end{frame}

\end{document}


The output is:

Check your versions for biblatex and update if necessary. In my system, TeX Live2015, at the moment of this answer:

biblatex.sty    2015/04/19 v3.0 programmable bibliographies (PK/JW/AB)
biblatex2.sty    2015/04/19 v3.0 programmable bibliographies (biber) (PK/JW/AB)
Biber 2.1

• I am using the .bib example from your posted answer – NAASI Aug 19 '15 at 13:21
• @NAASI Then use biber. Load the package as in \usepackage[backend=biber]{biblatex}. Delete the auxiliary files; in particular the .bbl file; run the document through pdflatex; open a terminal and (assuming your .tex name is called test.tex), run biber test now run pdflatex twice again in the document. – Gonzalo Medina Aug 19 '15 at 13:41
