I use textmaker and I have a problem. The bbl file is not generated from the bib file. How can I solve that?

Not familiar with this IDE but in
kile I use a separate hotkey Alt+- to the one for PDFLaTeX: Alt+6
This may be a related issue. Failing that, run in the console or command-line:
bibtex file.tex #generates a bbl latex file.tex #generates aux,dvi etc pdflatex file.tex # generates a PDF
Running BibTeX on a .tex file will generate a bbl based on the bibliography and citation inputs called within the .tex file (as it only lists those cited).
If you use TeXMaker, you should run bibtex or biblatex to generate the bbl file. It is not done automatically.
What I used to do, is first run
pdflatex and then
bibtex followed by two times
pdflatex. Because Bibtex needs the auxiliary file to generate the bbl file.
