gvfs-trash is part of GNOME's Gvfs, while
trash-cli is a separate set of tools independent of the desktop environment. Both programs implement the XDG Trash specification and should be compatible with each other. For example, you can trash files with
gvfs-trash or GNOME Nautilus, then restore from
trash-restore or KDE.
