How to place footcites at the bottom of the slide (see picture below)?

enter image description here

A bit similar problem was arisen here. I tried to adapt the solution with labeling of footnotes in which is used the sequence of commands: \footnote{\label{name}Some footnote text.} \footnotemark[\ref{name}], but it is not the solution for the \footcitetexts command. MWE:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{Frankfurt}
\usepackage[polish]{babel}
\usepackage{polski}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{tcolorbox}
\usepackage[style=verbose-ibid,sortcites]{biblatex}

\setbeamertemplate{navigation symbols}{}    % switch off buttons on the slide bottom

\usepackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents}{mylist.bib}
@book{roadrunner,
    author =    {Geococcyx californianus},
    title =     {Gregorian choir}
}
@book{cookiemonster,
    author =    {Blue monster},
    title =     {Astronautics}
}
\end{filecontents}
\addbibresource{mylist.bib}

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
    \centering
    \begin{tcolorbox}[title=This is tcolorbox]
        Aaa aaa aaa aaa\footcite{roadrunner}.
    \end{tcolorbox}
    \begin{tcolorbox}[title=This is tcolorbox]
        Bbb bbb bbb bbb\footcites[p. 100]{cookiemonster}[p. 200]{roadrunner}.
    \end{tcolorbox}
\end{frame}
\end{document}

BTW: If needed, is it possible to ensure wrapping of the \footcites content to fit it automatically to the box? (In the picture above it exceeds the box boundary.)

EDIT (after comments): If there are more than one reference in a single tcolorbox then the counters are wrong (at the bottom of the page). Modified MWE:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usetheme{Frankfurt}
\usepackage[polish]{babel}
\usepackage{polski}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{tcolorbox}
\usepackage[style=verbose-ibid,sortcites]{biblatex}

\setbeamertemplate{navigation symbols}{}    % switch off buttons on the slide bottom

\usepackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents}{mylist.bib}
@book{roadrunner,
    author =    {Geococcyx californianus},
    title =     {Gregorian choir}
}
@book{cookiemonster,
    author =    {Blue monster},
    title =     {Astronautics}
}
\end{filecontents}
\addbibresource{mylist.bib}

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
    \centering
    \begin{tcolorbox}[title=This is tcolorbox]
        Aaa aaa aaa aaa\footnotemark

        Ccc ccc ccc ccc\footnotemark.
    \end{tcolorbox}
    \footcitetext{roadrunner}
    \footcitetext{cookiemonster}
    \begin{tcolorbox}[title=This is tcolorbox]
        Bbb bbb bbb bbb\footnotemark.
    \end{tcolorbox}
    \footcitetexts[p. 100]{cookiemonster}[p. 200]{roadrunner}
\end{frame}
\end{document}

The problem is a bit similar to the linked one (above). Output:

Use \footnotemark and \footcitetext

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
    \centering
    \begin{tcolorbox}[title=This is tcolorbox]
        Aaa aaa aaa aaa\footnotemark.
    \end{tcolorbox}
    \footcitetext{roadrunner}
    \begin{tcolorbox}[title=This is tcolorbox]
        Bbb bbb bbb bbb\footnotemark.
    \end{tcolorbox}
    \footcitetexts[100]{cookiemonster}[200]{roadrunner}
\end{frame}
\end{document}

Since you are having trouble with consecutive footnotes, get the nextfootnote package by Ijon Tichy from TeXwelt and use

\newcommand*{\mkbibnextfootnotetext}[1]{\nextfootnotetext{\blxmkbibnote{foot}{#1}}}
\DeclareCiteCommand{\footcitetext}[\mkbibnextfootnotetext]
  {\usebibmacro{prenote}}
  {\usebibmacro{citeindex}%
   \usebibmacro{cite}}
  {\multicitedelim}
  {\usebibmacro{cite:postnote}}

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
    \centering
    \begin{tcolorbox}[title=This is tcolorbox]
        Aaa aaa aaa aaa\nextfootnotemark\nextfootnotemark
    \end{tcolorbox}
    \footcitetext{roadrunner}\footcitetext{roadrunner}
    \begin{tcolorbox}[title=This is tcolorbox]
        Bbb bbb bbb bbb\nextfootnotemark.
    \end{tcolorbox}
    \footcitetexts[100]{cookiemonster}[200]{roadrunner}
\end{frame}
\end{document}
  • Thx for the response. What about the case in which two footcites in one tcolorbox are placed? – forrest Mar 19 '17 at 15:06
  • @forrest Not sure if I get your drift, but you can easily have lorem\footnotemark ipsum\footnotemark in a tcolorbox and then \footcitetext{sigfridsson}\footcitetext{worman} after that. – moewe Mar 19 '17 at 15:10
  • I put the additional picture to my question. In this picture two records at the page bottom are labeled with number 2 (first should have number 1). – forrest Mar 19 '17 at 15:50

    @forrest This is a common issue, see tex.stackexchange.com/q/43692/35864 – moewe Mar 19 '17 at 17:14
  • I see that David Carlise and Stephen proposed solutions for footnotes, but I don't know how apply it for footcites. The accepted solution given by Ulrike Fischer is not associative. – forrest Mar 19 '17 at 19:41
