# Bibliography does not work with beamer. Ubuntu 14.04

I've been trying to use bibliography in a beamer document. I have tried in many ways and does not work at all. Here is an example of the document

    \documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage[backend=biber,style=apa]{biblatex}
\DeclareLanguageMapping{american}{american-apa}
\renewcommand*{\finalnamedelim}{%
\ifnumgreater{\value{liststop}}{2}{\finalandcomma}{}%
\DefineBibliographyStrings{english}{%
references = {Bibliografía Propuesta},
}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[spanish]{babel}
\usetheme{Singapore}
\usefonttheme{serif}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{amsthm, amssymb}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\cite{*}
\end{frame}
\begin{frame}[allowframebreaks]
\printbibliography
\end{frame}
\end{document}


I have only problems with beamer with other documents works well.

Here an example of one entry of the file References.bib

        @article{granger1981,
title={Some properties of time series data and their use in econometric model specification},
author={Granger, Clive WJ},
journal={Journal of econometrics},
volume={16},
number={1},
pages={121--130},
year={1981},
publisher={Elsevier}
}


The file gives the following message

     Empty bibliography


Can someone help me?

ps: I have tried many similar questions on this site, so it is not a duplicate question.

• You must \cite the reference or use \cite{*} for all references. – Herb Schulz Jun 13 '16 at 19:59
• Yes, i did it. I'll edit the question – Héctor Jun 13 '16 at 20:03
• you have tagged the question bibtex but the markup you are using will not work with bibtex you have backend=biber so you must use biber instead – David Carlisle Jun 13 '16 at 20:10
• So is the problem solved? I'm assuming so from your comments, but not sure. – cfr Jun 14 '16 at 1:41
• Please show the blg file. – Johannes_B Jun 14 '16 at 7:47
